Representations of butterflies have been popular for ages, dating back nearly 3,500 years ago to the Egyptian frescoes at Thebes. The beautiful butterfly is often associated with the human soul – signifying change, hope, and life.
This colorful butterfly charm dates to the Art Deco era (circa 1925-1935). It features natural rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and opals in platinum.
The charm measures 0.65 inches from top to bottom by 0.65 inches wide. It is in very good condition; however, one of the opals is a later replacement and some of the stones show surface wear (under magnification).
Materials: Ruby, Platinum.
