Here is a fantastic and rare Victorian jewelry set featuring insects. This set is made from the popular Victorian material called Gutta Percha. The set features a beautiful pair of leaf-shaped earrings with a larger, matching brooch. On each piece, a long beetle rests in the center of a beautifully carved leaf. This is a beautiful and rare pair of naturalistic antique jewelry from the Victorian period. During the Victorian period, natural motifs, including insects, were extremely popular. In addition, Gutta Percha was a popular material for molding jewelry and other small items, particularly black mourning and sentimental jewelry.

The Condition Report

An item must be 100 years old or older to be considered antique. This means many antiques may have age-related wear. We chalk it up to character and love it, but it is essential that we fully describe any wear, no matter how minor. Each piece is carefully inspected, tested, and fully described before it lands in the shop.
