A precious little bug! This gorgeous Gilded Rhino Beetle Necklace with diamond-encrusted wing case is makes an intriguing pendant from Entomology. This piece consists of a life-sized rhino beetle cast in Sterling Silver, highlighted with gold plating with garnets and tiny white diamonds on a light curb chain.
This piece is designed in London, handcrafted using traditional lost wax casting, and hallmarked by the London Assay Office.
MATERIALS & CARE
This necklace comes in oxidised Sterling Silver with vermeil details. If you would prefer polished silver, or any other metal, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Solid Sterling Silver can become tarnished over time, if this happens the most simple way to restore the necklace is to use a polishing cloth. I do not recommend Silver Dip on oxidised pieces as this will remove the oxidation. The 24ct gold plating is three microns thick but over time it may begin to fade with wear and it should not be polished too often. Take care using a polishing cloth on the chain as fibres may become caught and pulling the chain repetitively may weaken it. Always remove your jewellery for sports or when using harsh chemicals. Please read my guide to jewellery care to ensure it lasts for many years.
Made in Thailand by skilled and trusted craftspeople.
