My goal today is to post my 100th show and tell ;-D

This one is a pin from end of 19th century, unmarked gold, rosecut diamonds set in silver, ruby eyes.

(why does these insect pins always have red eyes? Must be to reflect their cruelty, eeek!).

The body has a rather dull mabe type pearl, I would love a carbuncle garnet cab or opal instead, but not find one convenient yet!
On the other hand, certainly not willing to ruin it by removing the pearl :-/

    I really love insect brooches but the ones I own are cheap and tacky.
    You always show pieces I admire and yearn for!!

    Jscott, thank you! I admire all your trunks and amazing work you did on them, I have no room enough to collect some as I would love to do ;-)
    Pins and jewels are tiny enough to keep a lot, lol!

    Racer, Bug spirit is in you! If you love them, catch the more you can!!!

    Thanks all of you to love and comment!
