18k Ruby, Pearl & Diamond Art Deco Bug Pin

A fabulous Art Deco bug pin meticulously crafted in 18k white, yellow and rose gold. The legs and antennae are yellow gold, the thorax is rose and the wings are white. The eyes are bezel set rubies, the wings have four bead set diamonds, the posterior is a large pearl. It measures 1&3/16" by 1". It has a trombone style catch with a pivoting safety in the tube- an indication that it is European (probably French) in origin. It is marked on the pin stem but is illegible, it tested 18k with acid. Condition is excellent, no damage or visible wear. Perfect for crawling up a lapel, a great addition to any collection.
