A butterfly flits and darts among the flowers in this Victorian hinged bangle.
Created in sterling silver, rose and yellow gold over silver appliques of a butterfly, blooms and leaves decorate the front half of this bracelet.
Three vignettes outlined in rose gold contrast engraved leaves, organic forms, and intricate checkerboard patterns. Plain and polished, the smooth back feels silken to the touch.
It is a medium width antique adornment dating to circa 1880.
