Spiders that would really scare Boris

Was Lady Hale sending Boris Johnson a message? Tell someone they are caught in a trap with our creepiest spider jewellery brooches.

  • Araignée de Chaumet brooch in white gold, set with brilliant-cut diamonds, coloured stones and a pear-shaped pink morganite (POA).
  • Hairy and scary, Hemmerle's tarantula is chillingly lifelike including its bulging body that is a 111.76-carat dark brown conch pearl, the largest of its kind ever found. It's legs are set with Umba sapphires. From the 1995 Hemmerle Art of Nature series.
  • Not one you would want to find in your bed. This brooch is a fantastically weird spider sprouting leaves from Lydia Courteille's Homage to Surrealism collection.
  • LydiaCourteille “spider” ring in fire opal, orange sapphires, diamonds, green garnets and blackened gold from the “Xochimilco Garden” collection.
  • From the Hong Kong based jeweller Heting each spider can be worn either as a pin or as a ring. The lifelike details of these gold rhodium-plated spiders with tsavorite details include articulated front legs.
  • Chiara Ferragni Sabbia Collection Pomellato shot by Cass Bird

  • Margot McKinney Peridot and Diamond cocktail ring
