Beautiful sterling silver butterfly earrings from the artisan silversmiths of Taxco Mexico. These butterfly wings are designed in three dimensions, as if lifted in flight. They give the impression that these gentle beauties simply landed on the curve of your ear. Screw back clasps allow you to enjoy these pieces whether your ears are pierced or not.
Nearly every ancient culture created lore where butterflies and moths were manifestations of the human soul. From ancient Rome to modern day Christianity, from the ancient Aztecs to modern day Wicca: We have a special place in our faith for the transformation within the chrysalis and the butterfly that emerges to take wing.
The sterling silver butterfly design measures 15 mm from top to bottom and 22 mm (just shy of an inch) at the widest point in the wing span. The backs are marked .925 and they weigh a feather-light 4.6 grams for the pair. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
