These stud earrings are made with wings of the Giant Blue Butterfly Morpho didius encased in glass.
An Amazonian tribe tells the legend of a girl lost in the jungle, saved by a Morpho butterfly, who gave her a winged heart.
Surgical steel post. Waterproof.
Diameter: 12mm (1/2 inch) approx.
No butterfly is harmed to make our jewelry; the wings are sent to us after they have expired naturally. Our suppliers are legal breeding farms in South America that care for the tropical forest and native species.
We work extremely hard to make our photos as life-like as possible, but colors can vary due to computer monitors and the natural characteristics of our materials.
Slight variations in the wing pattern are expected.
