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.

This listing is one (1) cicada, for the amber colored one in the first, 2nd and 3rd photo,

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

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

All my items for sale come from a non smoking home.
