 As the Industrial Revolution progressed, increasing numbers of people moved to towns and cities for work, so much so that the countryside became a place of nostalgia that was often romanticized. The Suez Canal was built between 1859 and 1869, which lead to a fascination with Egypt. The Victorians began mimicking the styles of jewelry found in ancient tombs, with insects being a favorite. Women adorned themselves with insect jewelry, wearing them on shawls, jackets, hats and even decorating their parasols with multiple little glittering creatures!

Converted from a Victorian stick pin, this ring will be a fun favorite in your collection! Lady Bugs have represented good luck for over a century, and it is said that to have one land on you will bring you good fortune for the rest of the year! We say bring the luck to yourself by sporting this wee, whimsical creature! The bug is made of silver, with a carved red stone for the body and glass eyes. We have had her set on a 14 karat gold replica shank, where she resides very prettily. A one of a kind, she is sure to delight and charm everyone you meet!
