I had a client bring me in a stick pin that she purchased which she
was told was from the 1920’s. It was described as a green iridized
scarab beetle. The box that contained the stick pin had O.D. Gunn
Jeweler, Biloxi, Miss on it. The cup shaped base that the "Beetle"
was prong set into is gold filled. Does anyone have any more
about this item? Is it a preserved (now dead) beetle or
something else? She would like to reset it into gold of another
design-is it fragile?
