|Just as butterflies take flight every spring, butterfly-themed jewelry and accessories emerge as fashion-forward favorites every year. Throughout history, butterfly imagery has been used in decorative objects and people have adorned themselves in butterfly-themed designs. The popularity of the butterfly has stood the test of time. Artistic depictions of butterflies can been found dating back to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and more recently on American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey in the form of an 18Kt white gold and diamond Van Cleef and Arpels Envol butterfly ring. Also, one of the most popular tattoo images is a butterfly.||
|The symbolic meaning of the butterfly is similar across most cultures, regardless of time, and is most commonly associated with the soul. Cultural myth and lore honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of its impressive metamorphosis--from caterpillar, to chrysalis and ultimately, the butterfly. Butterflies also symbolize spring, a celebratory time of year, and embody the beauty of symmetry, pattern, color and shape.
Butterflies often represent celebrations, weddings, life and journeys. They serve as a reminder of how beautiful and fragile life can be, and the importance of appreciating and being grateful for each moment.
Butterfly jewelry can be an inspirational gift to someone who is embarking on a challenge or life-changing journey. As a symbol of love, butterfly accents are a sentimental addition for wedding and bridal jewelry.
