This piece is named ‘Moonlight’ reflecting the dreamy colour of the blue morpho butterfly when it catches the light.
The ring features the wing of the blue morpho butterfly from South America. It dates from around the 1920’s and has a sterling silver setting with an ornate border.
The silver setting is a square shape and the band has kept its shape very well. The ring is in very good condition with signs of glue on the back and the word STERLING is stamped on the band. There is no maker’s mark. The ring is a size ‘P’.
The butterfly wing itself is in very good condition with only the slightest signs of age when examined with a magnifying glass.
The morpho butterfly wings were specifically chosen last century because of their beauty and the way they catch the light.
A stunning antique ring.
