During the 1860s, realistically rendered insects, such as flies, were a popular motif in jewelry, clothing and accessories.
In addition to the materials used, symbolism and sentimentality were also very important elements of Victorian jewelry design. It was said that one could understand a person's feelings, thoughts and hopes by the jewelry they wore or presented to another. The fly, in Victorian times, represented "humility."
These unique studs are a wonderful representation of the beauty and thoughtfulness of the jewelry of the era. They are 18k gold and have been tested and verified.
