Glamorized Crawlers

Normally I would run at the sight of any of the following, but I’m afraid that creepy crawlers have made it into the mainstream, in the form of jewelry. I have seen them in shoes, head pieces, you name it. There are several designers giving this trend an extravagant edge, this is what I found…

Nothing says splurge like a $9,500 rose gold beetle, Yes, Lynn Ban has taken its usual dark and edgy style into a collection that is all about beetles and scarabs, this one a pave diamonds set in rose gold. On the wearable side, Kenneth Jay Lane, designed a wearable version of the scarab featuring Austrian crystals in a gold plated setting for around $80.

Designer Eddie Borgo also has an interesting take on insects, at $1,600, the Winged Scarab is set in plated brass and made from onyx, jade, and red agate. On the other hand I managed to find an Egyptian inspired piece by Geisha Creation on Etsy, the handmade design goes for $41 and has a Czech crystal set on raw brass wire. Whether its an edgy or an antique look you are going for, the scarab is pretty versatile as far as design goes.

I loooove cocktail rings, and though an octopus is not a creepy crawler it fits with the whole creature theme. I have to say this Bernard Delettrez ring is gorgeous, it retails for around $740 and is made out of bronze and has a huge yellow prasorite stone. The counterpart is the Max & Chloe Bumble Bee, not nearly as edgy as the octopus, but the yellow pop of color and bumble bee silhouette, sure make it a cute alternative.
