Real Butterfly Jewelry - Real Butterfly Wing Necklace - Green and Black - Real Insect Jewelry - Entomology - Gift for Her - Sunset Moth
This beautiful antique silver pendant features the wing of a REAL moth, the Sunset Moth. The wing sits beneath a glass cabochon that is 1" round. Both the pendant and the 18" chain are a beautiful antique silver. The Madagascar Sunset Moth (Urania rhipheus) is a day-flying moth. It is considered one of the most impressive and appealing-looking of all moths and butterflies, with its brightly colored, iridescent wings. It is found throughout the year in most parts of Madagascar. Famous worldwide, it is featured in most coffee table books on Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) and is much sought after by collectors. Adults have a wingspan of 2.8 – 3.5 inches. HOW MY BUTTERFLIES ARE OBTAINED No butterflies are ever harmed or killed in the making of my jewelry. I obtain my butterflies from butterfly farms and conservatories after they have been allowed to live their full lifespan and have died naturally. Butterflies are natural works of art! By creating jewelry using real butterfly wings, these amazing works of art can by preserved and enjoyed, even after the butterflies have passed on naturally. CARE & CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS I spend a great deal of time, effort, and love creating each piece of jewelry. While my pieces are water resistant, because of the delicate nature of the wings, they are NOT waterproof. Please remove before showering or swimming. To clean, gently wipe with a baby wipe. Avoid detergents and other harsh chemicals as well as traditional jewelry cleaners.
