The fly in jewelry often symbolizes bravery. Flies can be pesky but you have to admire their tenacity and fearlessness in landing on creatures a thousand times their size. May this Victorian black fly remind you of your own strength and courage. A flirty fringed tassel enhances the concept of movement, while tiny etched botanicals and a petite seed pearl flower on her back bring garden vibes. Alternating smooth and textured checkerboard links add yet more style to the fabulous design. A truly lovely old piece of jewelry, engraved with an E, perhaps the initial of the original owner or the person who gifted it to her.
