This beetle pendant is just gorgeous. The genuine Paua Shell insert, with its gleaming and iridescent colors, is set off beautifully by the antiqued golden finish. The legs and head feature wonderful detail. Some say that beetles symbolize persistence, strength, and even intelligence. Our beetle charm is a beautiful reminder of those attributes. Each piece will be a little different, due to the natural shell insert. The underside of this pendant is sculpted also, so the beetle is finished on both sides – a quality touch that is very rare at this price point.
