Fashion frequently dictates the design of accessories. Novelty in fashion was especially popular from the middle of the 19th century. The use of insects in jewelry design continued until the end of the century and their attraction persists to this day.
Vivienne Becker writes," The most pleasant result of this insect vogue was the butterfly jewel". Multiple color variations were used and this charming pendant features rubies, emeralds and diamonds set in silver on an 18K gold base. The stones are vibrant and beautifully matched. Although it measures only one and one eighth by one inch in size, it measures large in quality and design. It would grace the throat of any lady when hung on a fine antique gold chain.
