Mosquito Studs

$350.00
About Details Inspiration

Like it or not, humans have always had insects in their lives. From ancient jewelry to the present, we see jeweled amulets in the forms of butterflies (transformation), cicadas (rebirth), spiders (wisdom), scarabs (renewal), dragonflies (strength) and bees (organization).  I don't know what mosquitoes could mean, symbolically. I just think of my happy childhood summers in Maine.  Each pair is made in 14k gold, with moonstone orb bodies and a total of 6 .01ct diamonds (3 on each earring).

Bugs are sort of jewel-like, if you think about it, being tiny and colorful, with crazy details.  The Victorians made realistically rendered gem-encrusted bugs, which inspired our mosquito studs.
