Insect themed jewelry, like the piece featured in this listing, was popular during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
This beautifully rendered shibayama pendant was originally an antique gold filled brooch (circa 1880-1900) that we transformed by removing the pin findings and adding a domed 14k gold back and 14k gold bail.
The piece has finely rendered mother of pearl and horn insects inlaid onto a wafer. It is signed by the original artist and in exceptional condition.
