A vintage bug brooch featuring an oval cabochon cut Queensland boulder opal. The opal is bright and displays a range of colours in both natural and artificial light. His little bum lights up quite spectacularly in orange and green, although a rainbow of colours including teal, yellow and pink run through the veins of opal in the ironstone matrix.
A delightful unisex jewel in 9ct yellow gold. It features a rigid pin to the rear (does not flex open easily by design) and a rollover safety clasp. Once you’ve pinned this little guy to your jacket he won’t be going anywhere under his own steam.
The brooch measures 20.5mm x 19mm x 4mm (not including the pin). The opal cabochon is approximately 10mm x 7.5mm
