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 ancient Egypt, revived during the 1800's and has been in fashion well into the 20th century. Especially insect brooches were popular during the late Victorian era. You will find a variety of vintage inspired brooches of insects from the bees to the spiders in this collection. These won’t bite, we promise!
