Again, where in the Middle East? :P Getting kinda annoyed at how non-specific these fashion blogs are with this stuff. /nitpicky
But this jacket is pretty too.
I can only be as specific as my sources. If you check out the source that I linked to, you’ll see that it describes the jacket as only “Middle Eastern”.
This is pretty detailed hair pin with not only Kingfisher inlay but semi-precious stones as well as a some coral and white jade it looks like. Also Mid Qing. My guess is it’s a cricket cause a cicada would be fatter. But I’m no bugologist. Fine. Entomologist.
Three of Tutankhamun’s Rings
(a) The green nephrite signet shows the King and Min.
(b) The three-dimensional bezel is formed from a lapis lazuli scarab flanked by an inlaid falcon and moon barque on a cartouche-shaped base. The inlays are green jasper and glass.
(c) The scarab bezel of the gold ring is of chalcedony; the underside shows Thoth and the udjat.
