This beautiful ring in rose gold finish features the wing of a REAL butterfly, the Blue Morpho Butterfly. The butterfly wing is a beautiful metallic blue color. The wing is embedded under a glass dome measuring 12mm. The ring is adjustable from approximately US size US 4-10). The Menelaus Blue Morpho (Morpho menelaus) is an iridescent tropical butterfly of Central and South America. It has a wing span up to 5.9 inches. The males are very territorial and use their bright blue wings to scare off other males. Intricate patterns of scales on the underside of their hind wings create an illusion of large staring vertebrate eyes, complete with pupils and irises. It is thought that these intricate eyespots are used by the butterfly to startle or otherwise confuse hungry predators such as birds or lizards. PLEASE NOTE Your ring is handmade to order. While it will be nearly identical to the ring pictured, because no two butterfly wings are identical, there will be some very slight variation from the one shown in the photographs. 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. However, because of the delicate nature of the wings, the ring is NOT waterproof. Please remove before washing hands, swimming or bathing. To clean, gently wipe with a baby wipe. Avoid detergents and other harsh chemicals as well as traditional jewelry cleaners.
