Product Description

Some of the most beautiful things in the world are created by nature. The butterfly wing is one of those things. Bring a little bit of that beauty into your every day wardrobe with these stunning earrings!

Peru is home to 20% of the earth's butterfly species. It's the ideal place to establish butterfly preserves for the purpose of study and protection of these marvelous creatures. This cooperative has paired with one such preserve and they've found a way to capture their beauty for years to come. When the butterflies die of natural causes, some in as short a span as 3 to 4 months, the wings are picked up and used for jewelry. Each wing is carefully cut to make a matching pair, then mounted and enclosed by silver plated nickel. The front and back of the earring are covered with acrylic glass so both sides of the wing can be seen. The artisans are paid 50% up front so they have money for supplies and to support their family while they are making the earrings. Due to the unique pattern on every butterfly wing, slight variations will occur.

  • Made by hand in Peru
  • Sterling silver plated over nickel drop on sterling silver ear wires
  • Species: Chrysiridia Rhipheus and Blue Morpho (The two wings placed over each other adds a fun twist)
  • Earring measures approximately 1-5/8" long including ear wires
  • No kill butterfly wings with acrylic "glass" on both sides
  • Image is representative of the general pattern and color of the species. Due to the nature of butterfly wings, exact patterning is different on every pair, making each one unique.
