This is a classic Egyptian Revival stick pin from the Victorian era. The piece has a real iridescent green beetle preserved and prong set on the gold stick pin setting. These pieces were popular in the late 1800's and often did not survive over time. This piece is an excellent example from that era.
The pin is 2-1/2” long and the beetle is about 5/8” by 1/2” in size. The pin is not marked, but it tests 10k with acid. The weight is 1.5 grams.
