Trust Badge



This rare and unusual antique Amethyst bug hair ornament is so sweet, we just can't get enough of her!

Two expertly faceted Amethysts catch the light, sending lilac shimmers surging across the body of the bug. Pretty detailed Pearl encrusted wings perfectly frame the Amethysts, creating a whimsical piece of Art Nouveau jewellery.

When the wings are pressed towards each other the steel hinge is opened allowing for this ornament to be clipped to your hair with ease. 

The perfect gift for any woman who loves unique jewellery or the most wonderful treat for yourself!
