I would never suggest not viewing one of our amazing slideshows, but if you have a bug phobia, it may be time to step away. It may also be time to chill on buying new jewelry, because insect-themed baubles are about to be all the rage this fall. From high end (McQueen and Lanvin got in on the motif) to low, it’s time for the pretty bug show. These won’t bite, we promise. What they will do is add a cool-chick factor to every look you wear them with.
This is going to be the prettiest bug landing you've ever experienced, promise. From Oscar de la Renta, this broach offers gorgeous colors ripe for fall and a statement that will look amaze on a denim jacket, blazer or scarf.

These dragonfly earrings look more like artwork than the fauna they're meant to represent. Oh, and they're beautiful. The smoky grey color of the stones is definitely on for fall dressing, too.
$295 at Tory Burch.
I love the price here, and I double love the pretty blue accent of this little fly's body. Pretty and sweet, pastel colors made an appearance on fall runways. Maybe they should make an appearance on you too?

All the Pretty Bugs
Three's the charm in this statement piece. The turquoise color is pretty much asking to be worn with everything chambray you own. I like the idea of juxtaposing it with bodycon and lightweight layers.

You won't need to stack bangles when you've got this one in your arsenal. Its all the statement you need and the perfect thing to have on hand when you can't decide on your jewelry for the day. Slip this on, and you're ready to go.

The blue transparency here gives these little buggy studs an upscale vibe and an estate feel I'm digging. That vintage feel is unique in these brave new insect pieces. Pick it up if you can.

Can I interest you in a little dragonfly charm to wear with your favorite chain or charm bracelet? So simple, it's a lovely gift idea for the girl who has everything, don't you think?
$30 - $34 at Nordstrom.
Granted, this is a fantasy piece and would be a major investment. But that's what high fashion is about for most of us, inspiration and fantasy. Can you see these little bees hard at work, making their honey? The tortoise pattern makes me think of a piece of wood in the forest, serving as a landing strip for beautiful amber bees.
$845 at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Here's another McQueen number that might be a bit more affordable. The size of this ring has the bug hugging the first joint of your finger, up to the knuckle. Love that. Big, bold and brave.
$135 at Shopbop.
These little cuties can be worn by any age, and any fashion taste, which makes them another prime candidate for gift territory. They're ideal little day trippers that pick up the work of any of your standard pearl or diamond studs.
$46 at Etsy.
She's in charge. This large statement necklace can't really represent anything other than a woman who knows what she wants and gets it. Oh, and one who garners the favor of plenty of admirers, too, just like any queen bee.
