Figural jewelry is the items - as brooches, rings, and pendants - of figurative design, such as animals or persons. The style, which was popular in 16th century France and dates back to ancient Egypt, revived during the 1800s and has been in fashion well into the 20th century. Especially insect brooches were popular during the late Victorian era.
The collection features vintage style jewelry, exclusively brooches of bugs and insects, ranging from bees to spiders. The beetle brooch, which is reminiscent of the Egyptian Revival style, is undoubtedly the star of this collection.
The beetle in the beetle brooch won’t bite, we promise!
