Victorian Scarab Beetle Stickpin
This scarab beetle, unusually, is mounted under a glass lens to help magnify it. This is specimen jewelry, making use of the naturalism aesthetic that was born from science, geographic exploration, and Darwin. It comes with the extraordinary box which is original to the piece.
