Diamond Fly Studs

$175.00
About Details Inspiration

Flies had symbolic significance in the 19th century: they were often used as representations of human mortality and by extension, spiritual humility. But almost everything in the Victorian era seemed to point toward the idea of Memento Mori. More interestingly, flies were used to symbolize secrets or secret-keeping. Think of the fly on the wall which sees everything but tells no one. Don't you have a friend who's kept their lips sealed over the years? These gorgeously detailed studs were made for us by our talented new friends The Eden Collective in Philadelphia. They're recycled 10k gold with diamond-studded eyes. Available singly or as a pair.

Jeff Goldblum at the absolute height of his hotness in The Fly. (Before he turns into a fly, obviously.) But that's MY inspiration. The Eden Collective was inspired by a Victorian jeweled insect.
