The butterfly measures 1 7/16" wide and the three-part pendant of disk, butterfly, and bar is 2 3/8" high.

The design includes mountain tops, most likely the tallest is Mount Fuji, huts, clouds and a small bird. The disk has three moths/butterflies and the slim bar beneath the butterfly has tiny flower inlays. The reverse of the pendant is entirely gold-plated. "K24" is stamped on the front.
