This Urania Ryphaeus Necklace from Papillon Belle is made from a real butterfly wing encased in glass and surrounded by a thick frame of sterling silver. 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 here as they appear in nature. This truly special piece will metamorphose into an heirloom, causing hearts to alight generation after generation.
