Butterfly Kaleidoscope Victorian Locket Blue Chalcedony Scorolite Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A cluster of five iridescent Common Blue miniature butterflies appear to be captured in flight, creating a mesmerizing diorama housed within an antique Victorian silver paste locket. The incredibly talented artist who designs these precious wings of fancy in miniature, has done so with exacting accuracy and details. Look closely and you can see not only the beautiful iridescence of the wings with shaded edges, but the painstaking modeling of the minuscule blue butterfly body including the antennae and legs.

This unique butterfly tableau has been married to a long layering necklace of hand-linked blue chalcedony, intercepted with light pastel lavender scorolite beads and flanked with freshwater pearls. The opalescent quality of the scorolite beads repeats the beautiful lavender pink and periwinkle blue shimmering colors of the butterfly wings. The charming bow crowned silver paste locket is the perfect frame for this tiny work of art. The convex glass cover on the locket helps to magnify the details of this delicate swarm of beauty.

37.25 inches long / locket .89 X 1.18 inch high / 2.5 inch drop.
