Antique Victorian Ruby Diamond Butterfly Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This adorable antique necklace is fashioned as a diamond-studded butterfly, with vibrant ruby accents. The butterfly itself is likely of Russian origin, and came to us as a pin brooch. Our jeweller has added a 9k yellow gold chain, with a further ruby accent just above the pendant where the chain crosses. A wonderful piece, of exceptional quality and charm. Wearable length: 18 inches.
