No, we’re not bugging out: insect jewellery is the latest accessory to captivate the fashion world. From a bumblebee-studded choker (similar version here) to a tortoiseshell cuff festooned with the insects, Alexander McQueen’s S/S 13 collection was the bee’s knees, but we’ve also spotted creepy-crawlies of all varieties (think: beetles, butterflies, and more) adorning elegant pieces of jewellery. Thanks to these critter-inspired charms, these baubles get a slightly subversive spin. Click through to see the bug-embellished picks you should Go Buy Now.
