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+1/4" long (57mm) and has simple metal pin hook on the back.
He has brilliant rhinestone eyes and rhinestone accents and little brass studs.
The rhinestones are very sparkly, unlike my photo. Natural diffused daylight does not bring out the sparkle, but they really picky up the light nicely under the right circumstances :)

This listing is one (1) cicada, for the rootbeer brown one in the first 4 photos,
These rhinestone embellished ones are very rare, and I only have 2 of them.
The other is more detailed, and will go up for sale, soon.

The others are listed separately, though I am just about sold out.

Bring yourself some luck :-)
They look adorable worn as a pair.

Back to my Etsy Front Page for more unusual obsessions:
and then click on the 'Jewelry' category on the left hand side, if you want to see more cicadas :)

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