Partly inspired by the Ancient Egyptians and in part by a renewed love of nature and the countryside in light of rapid urbanization, natural motifs like insects were seen as genteel, nurturing, and virtuous.

It was in the 1860s that Victorian women first began to wear beetles and other insect motifs on their clothes and accessories, with parasols, hats, and shawls often featuring insects, as well as bracelets, earrings, and rings.

A very sweet brooch with a sword that slices a textured bit of "tree bark" in yellow gold filled with a paste buggy.
