The cicada. This insect, is thought by many, to bring you luck, when worn, or displayed in your home, as many of the French believe. It is not uncommon to find cicadas in french homes, in the way of wall art, nik naks, and most importantly, jewelry. I purchased these about 8 years ago, from a dealer friend of mine, who's roots are French, and is always coming back with interesting things to sell to me. Purchased in Paris from old custom jewelry stock, this vintage french plastic cicada pin is from the 1960s, but never used, bright and clean with no damage. He has super details with nice dimension.

The pin is 2+3/8" long (58mm) and has simple metal pin hook on the back.
These are becoming very rare. At one time I had over 100 of these little guys.
I am down to about a dozen.

This listing is one (1) cicada, for the magenta colored one, in the first picture in Large.
It is the bigger of the 3 sizes shown in the other photos.

Whatever I have left will be listed slowly in the next couple of weeks,
as I am truly very busy with my bread and butter shop.
Bring yourself some luck :-)
They look adorable worn as a pair.

KINDLY READ my shop policies, as there may be information, that pertains to your purchase.
