Golden Bee Diamond Brooch
Insect jewelry is fast becoming the rage as of late, and this vintage one is a charmer. A 14k white and yellow gold bee holds a total of 10 diamonds on her back. The diamonds are spaced out on the back in a curved pattern matching the curves of the insect, giving the piece great dimension. The detail to the wings and legs is amazing in this piece, making it feel very life-like.
Bees are believed to be harbingers of good luck, news and money, and are also symbolic of wisdom, spirituality and purity. This is the perfect pin for the bee lover, and it would also make a wonderful and unique bridal hair pin.
