This unique pair of handcrafted earrings comes from Mountain Treasures in Park City, Utah.
These earrings dance with movement & have a mesmerizing iridescent blue green sheen! They are made from Jewel Beetle wing covers imported from Thailand and .925 Solid Sterling Silver. Each wing cover is unique and range in deep blue to green in color. When moving, the wing covers appear to change colors in the light. The Jewel Beetle wing covers are not from the wild - they are farmed. Because the wing covers are all unique and the rings used to fasten them are handmade, lengths of the earrings will vary from pair to pair (wing covers used are matched by size & color). These earrings are very exotic looking yet versatile within any wardrobe. By far one of my favorites we make at Mountain Treasures. Lightweight and lots of fun!
The materials used to create each earring are:
- 2 Jewel Beetle wing covers (vary in size, length & color)
- Tribal Coil .925 cylindrical .925 silver bead 8 mm x 3 mm
- Solid .925 Solid Silver Findings from India:
22 gauge solid silver wire
22 gauge earring hook with ball
- Total length = approximately 2 1/4" - 3" (1/2" hook +1 3/4" - 2 1/2" long from top of
pin eye to bottom of beetle wing covers)
-Earrings weigh 0.1 oz / 2 g (per pair)
A great gift for yourself, a loved one, family members, friends, teachers, coworkers, neighbors, or anyone else special in your life.
All jewelry created by Kiki Bella Gifts and Mountain Treasures is hand crafted by skilled artisans in the Rocky Mountains of the United States of America. We are a father/daughter team creating unique jewelry and crafts to bring smiles around the country & around the world :)
We only use the best gems, semi-precious stones, silver, artisan glass, and beading materials. All jewelry materials we use are new and have been hand selected from gem and silver dealers across America. We only use .925 solid sterling silver. We don't use silver plated, "silvertone" (which means it isn't silver at all), or any other metals such as steel in our jewelry findings and beads. When purchasing gems and semi-precious stones we only buy the highest grade available, striving to provide A grade gems in all jewelry. By only buying grade A gems and semi-precious stones the color shines through like it should and the quality is apparent. We use only the best materials in our jewelry because we believe jewelry is an art and our art deserves the best. We also believe that you deserve jewelry made from the best materials so that every time you wear our jewelry it brings a smile to your face. We take time creating this jewelry not cutting corners or rushing the process so every piece is the best it can be. Our prices reflect the cost of materials and labor put into the jewelry - we do not inflate prices, we charge what is fair. Every piece of jewelry that we make comes in a re-sealable plastic jewelry bag. This ensures your jewelry will stay in good shape while in storage when not being worn. We live in smoke-free environments.

The jewel beetle wing covers used in this jewelry are imported from Thailand. They are not from the wild – they are farmed.
The jewel beetles or metallic wood-boring beetles are a family (Buprestidae) of beetles known for their glossy iridescent colors.
The family is among the largest of the beetles, with some 15,000 species in 450 genera. The larger and more spectacularly colored jewel beetles are highly prized by insect collectors.
Shape is generally cylindrical or elongate to ovoid, with lengths ranging from 3 mm to 100 mm, although most species are less than 20 mm. A variety of bright colors are known, often in complicated patterns.
