the story

Cute as a bug!  

Originally found as an Edwardian era stick pin, we reimagined this special and bright bug into a super cute charm.  Fully articulated throughout, the blinged out wings stand out front and center.  Done in platinum topped 14k yellow gold, they're set with 12 old single cut diamonds, 6 on each wing, ranging in size from 0.01 carats to 0.02 carats for a total diamond weight of approximately 0.27 carats.  For a pop of color, a bezel set old cut ruby sits at top as the head of the bug.  Spindly 14k yellow gold legs and antennae are found at the top and sides along with a solid 14k yellow gold body. 

We had our expert jeweler remove the original stick pin and place a matching 14k yellow gold bale on the top left leg making it hang perfectly askew.  It hangs on our F&B 14k yellow gold 16 inch link chain.
