Victorians were fascinated with insects, embracing their beauty, mystery and metamorphosis - the latter of which mirrored the extraordinary and somewhat unsettling changes brought on by the Industrial Revolution. Beetles and butterflies were found in art, ornamentation and fashion, and a natural extension of this was jewelry. Here we have a beautiful example of an entymological love token, not very often seen. Cast from an original love token, this casting features a butterfly surrounded by a decorative border, this dainty little piece is perfect as a pendant or an addition to a charm bracelet. A blank back holds the metal purity mark, with enough room for you to engrave your pendant to add further sentiment to this adorable piece.
The pendant measures 16.5 MM across, and 30 MM long, including the openable diamond bale. Pendants are made to order; please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
