Well, this is my smallest ciccada brooch. It's about 3cm. I bought a bunch of crap jewelry to get this fellow. I love how they were popular during the twenties and I love that they are symbol for eternal life.
I don't think its very old, I think its '60-'70 and from France. It clearly hasn't been worn. I have another one, its about 8 or 9cm! It has another finish to the back, and its a bit older. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from that one. I saw the bigger ones been sold for around 100 euro but I think something is worth what the fool wants to pay for it.
I love them anyway and I hope to get a small collection starting.

    When you posted earlier on my site I KNEW you had a fabulous ciccada like this! It is so beautiful! I hope you wear it when you go to brunch or lunch where bugs might not be accepted....

    Interesting brooch, but VERY noisy bugs!

    They were here in 2010 and were almost deafening.
