Beetle Ring aquakej

Wow--a ring made from a beetle. This is unique. I don't believe I've every seen a ring made from a real beetle. It is beautiful.....

This ring features an antique silver lace/filigree design, set with a blue beetle that has a mirror-like shiny natural finish. I got this speciman as part of a mixed package, so I'm not certain exactly what species this is or what it's worth, but it looks valuble to me.
Best seen in person, this is a wonderful speciman to wear around, because it changes color slightly in different lighting situations. It is especially brilliant in the sun!

This Victorian-style ring setting protects the beetle nicely, and measures about 20mm from top to bottom. It has a nicely decorated adjustable band that will easily fit ring sizes from 5 to 8 or 9. It's currently adjusted to a size 7. The beetle itself measures about 15mm from top to bottom.
