Description
What a pretty sight: This necklace is a little gem that immediately put a smile on our faces when it came to us from Bavaria. The graceful diamond-studded butterfly at its center is in the grand tradition of insect jewellery. Since the late 19th century, butterflies, bees, flies and all kinds of other little animals have populated the lapels, collars and necklines of fashion-conscious ladies and gentlemen - and have never left them. The little sparkling companions are too beautiful, too refreshing. Here, such a butterfly has fluttered to us: eight precious diamonds of very good quality, weighing about 0.38 ct, are set into the wings as sparkling focal points. Set in high-carat gold, the butterfly is a hand-forged showpiece that was once purchased from a distinguished Munich jeweler. Made in the 1990s, the necklace is beautifully preserved and the perfect piece of jewellery for all ladies who appreciate luxurious jewellery creations with a playful touch. Cf. on the dating for example David Bennett/Daniela Mascetti: Understanding Jewellery, London 2010, p. 471.
