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 whimsical gold butterfly necklace is a visual delight. The butterfly's wings are outlined in gold with pops of color from carefully placed red and green glass accents and pearls. The 14k gold butterfly was originally an antique brooch (circa 1870-1890) before our jeweler removed the pin findings and welded on an 14k gold chain to transform the piece into a necklace.
The butterfly measures 1.5 inches wide by 0.8 inches tall, and the total necklace length is 17 inches. The piece is in very good condition.
