The insect jewellery of the Victorian and Edwardian eras is always popular, like this gorgeous antique, Egyptian revival, 9ct gold and triple scarab beetle brooch.

This piece is a particularly fine example, it features three real scarab beetles, claw set in a bloomed 9ct gold mount, intercepted by beautiful gold leaves further adding to its natural feel.

The Victorian's began somewhat of an obsession with insect themed jewels from scarabs to spiders, entomology was increasingly popular with insects appearing in many places not least jewellery.

They were seen as an exotic fashion and this carried on into the early 20th century and is certainly a popular choice amongst our customers (and us!) Today.

It has a pin and c type clasp fastener.

Marks and era:
Unmarked, tests as 9ct gold, c1890s, Victorian era

Good used condition overall, light surface wear commensurate with age, some light surface wear to the green shimmer of the beetles but only minor.
