The pair of hardened forewings of certain insects, as beetles, forming a protective covering for the posterior or flight wings.
These wing coverings are not painted in any way. The gorgeous color is completely natural of the magnificent Jewel beetles. These beetles have a life span of only a few days and at the end of this life they shed their elytra, providing me with these wonderful burst of color for my jewelry.
These earrings are a great statement piece and can be worn with all kinds of outfits. Spice up any day with these vibrant earrings. They are light and easy to wear. The wings even make a lovely sound when they move!
The chain is gold plated and the ear hooks are gold filled, which means the plating will not come off and are hypoallergenic.
