This fun and sophisticated Art Deco Diamond and Pearl bug brooch is full of life and character! With Diamond wings, Ruby eyes and an abdomen of Pearls and Gold, how could we not love him?!
He was made during the Art Deco period and the dainty millegraine details along with the illusion set Diamond wings are typical of this era.
We simply adore the life-like, three-dimensional design and the whimsical look on the butterfly's face! The trombone clasp is just lovely, whilst those glittering wings add a magical touch!
