Victorian Butterfly Kaleidoscope Silver Paste Locket Rock Crystal Necklace


Kaleidoscope de Papillon III Necklace. “I welcome all butterflies into my heart because that feeling is a constant reminder of how alive and full of love I truly am.” ― Karen A. Baquiran The allure and mystic nature of butterflies has continued to mesmerize humans for thousands of years. The metamorphosis from caterpillar to such a delicate winged creature, has spawned a treasure trove of enduring folklore and fairy tales. It is not uncommon for adults faced with the loss of a loved one, to find solace in the happy and playful flight of butterflies as a sign from a newly departed soul. A cluster of three iridescent Blue Morpho 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 miniature wings of fancy, has done so with exacting accuracy and details. Look closely and you can see not only the beautiful peacock blue iridescence of the wings with shaded black edges, but the painstaking modeling of the minuscule butterfly body - including the antennae and legs. This unique butterfly tableau has become the focal point of an equally beautiful choker necklace of sparkling faceted rock crystal set in oxidized/rhodium silver bezels. Designed to nestle gently at the collarbone, the necklace is adjustable and features a swirl faceted rock crystal teardrop at the bttom of the oxidized silver chain. One should look just as beautful leaving the room as entering! The glass covers of the heirloom locket, help to protect this delicate swarm of beauty. Adjustable from 18.5 - 20.5 inches long X .61 inches wide / locket 1.21 inches diameter.
