About the gemstone

The jewel beetle, or Sternocera aequisignata, is a species of beetle belonging to the Buprestidae family. Historically, these vibrant wings were sewn into Victorian-era gowns, like sequins. They were farmed in Thailand- the shells collected after they died of natural causes. HBJ loves jewel beetle wings for their iridescence and vibrancy. 
Origins: Farmed in Thailand
Care: Jewel beetle wings are very delicate. Jewel beetle wing jewelry is typically backed with epoxy to help stabilize it, but they need to be handled with great care: no abrasive surfaces, knocking about, etc. It is an organic material, so avoid chemicals at all costs.


The Story of Cameo

The hand-carved, formidable female faces of the Cameo collection aim to empower women with meditative and eerie adornments. Each Lady is a love letter to art nouveau and a symbol of the soft power, strength, femininity, and perseverance found in all who identify as a woman. These contemporary Cameos are often paired with repurposed diamonds, baroque pearls, naturalistic gemstones, bright silver, and 18k gold. Eerie yet elegant, tranquil, and enlightened: the Cameo collection offers talisman of empowerment and connection to herstories yet to be written. Shop the full Cameo Collection
