Originally elements from Victorian pins, we've repurposed these delicately detailed insects as single stud earrings; perfect for the modern ear stack statement. Both crafted in 14k yellow gold, the stylized bee has a plump pearl body with mine-cut diamond accented wings and a genuine sapphire thorax; while the little fly glows with a garnet and synthetic sapphire body and seed pearl set wings.

Choose your favorite from the drop down menu.

The fly measures approximately 1/2" long by 3/8" wide, the bee measures 7/16" long by 7/16" wide. Both come complete with sturdy 14k tension backs.

Victorian society was obsessed by all things found in nature and consequently insects were especially favorite subjects for jewelry design in the 19th century. Elaborately jeweled or enameled and often brilliantly realistic bugs could be found adorning the collars, shirt fronts, cuffs, fingers, arms and ears of the fashionable Victorian.

Even the common housefly found itself celebrated by the jewelers art crafted in precious metals and gems. Flies were used sometimes as representations of human mortality and by extension spiritual humility; while the ant symbolized determination, discipline and self-sacrifice.

In excellent condition with light patina and some subtle wear to the stones.

I honestly had this in my favourites forever and every time I thought it’s too much money just delete it...I couldn’t. I finally “bit the bullet” and so glad I did! It is stunning, delicate and beautiful. Thank you!

The shipping on this stud was super quick. It’s cute and simple and I love the design. I just wish the skull was a tad thicker. I was really afraid of bending it unintentionally. I reached out to Eden and she allowed me to return the dainty earring since it wasn’t a perfect fit for me personally. Lots of cute pieces with the shop. Packaging and note were sweet additions. Thank you for your quick response and customer service.

These look great online and just as amazing in person. They’re so light I can’t tell I’m wearing them. And the detail is so sharp. Very worth the money (also, artists deserve to charge this much for what it’s worth) because you won’t find anything like this elsewhere and people will ask about them. 10/10

Absolutely beautiful! Fast shipping and came with an adorable package and handwritten note from Eden. They were a little difficult to get in and the earring back is semi thin so I am concerned about it bending with multiple wears. However, I can not wait to show them off! Definitely will be checking out her other items.
