I’m loving Bottega Veneta‘s collection of quirky and unusual scarab jewelry. The iridescence of the metallic green pieces make the otherwise reptilian insects so luminous and pretty! Fun fact: did you know that the oldest scarab beetle fossil dates back 40 million years? And not only were they considered sacred in ancient Egypt, they were revered in China and South America too.
