This unusual Antique Insect Brooch, dating to the late 19th century, features two moonstones and two ruby paste eyes set in silver.

Insect jewellery, like this brooch, is highly collectable and symbolised good luck to the wearer during the Victorian era. Insects were seen as symbols of transformation and rebirth, making them popular motifs in Victorian jewellery.

Whether you're a collector or looking for a unique gift, this brooch is a versatile piece that fits the bill. It's a wonderful collector's item and would make a perfect addition to any collection, making it a worthwhile investment and a great addition.

Measures 2.7cm x 2.8cm

This fabulous Moonstone Insect Brooch remains in excellent condition. There is a patina in keeping with age, which has darkened the Silver; however, this only adds to the antique charm. All the pearls are original and securely in place. This would make a great gift, packaged in a professional jewellery box.
