This limited edition necklace from Papillon Belle is made from a real female Birdwing butterfly wing encased in glass, surrounded by a thick frame of sterling silver that traces its natural shape. Both uniquely colored sides of the wing are visible between two clear panels, which shed light on brilliant colors and markings that are as intricate as they are in nature. This truly special piece will metamorphose into an heirloom, causing hearts to alight, generation after generation.
Sterling silver chain measures L 17.71”. Real wing pendant measures W 1.18 H 2.04" D .15”. Spring ring clasp. Frame is engraved with the logo and year of manufacture on the side.
Includes a certificate with the name and photograph of the species as well as its country of origin. Packaged in a luxury gift box lined with satin. Handmade in South Africa. Because this is a natural product, there may be small imperfections in the wing.
