Unique Butterfly Necklaces of All Colors

Fine silver jewelry designed and created by artist Shirley Matteson, in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

Taking inspiration from butterflies of all colors, including the iconic Monarch Butterfly, Shirley has created a line of gorgeous, colorful butterfly necklaces. Choose from purple, red, yellow, green, or blue. Or, there are also specialty designs, like a rainbow butterfly, tigers eye, or even peacock! And now, these gorgeous butterfly jewels are also available as lapel decor (like a pin, but with a powerful magnet instead).

Butterflies undergo a metamorphosis, and so are a symbol of hope and rebirth. Their meaning is often associated with a transformation or triumph. Because of this symbolism, butterfly necklaces make great gifts for mothers. They also can be great gifts for those rites of passage – an important birthday, going away to college, or overcoming personal challenges. Unique gifts like fine jewelry show are sure to stand out and show how much you truly care.

Cloisonné Fine Jewelry

Shirley uses a technique called ‘Cloisonné,’ to create these colorful butterfly necklaces for her fine jewelry collection. First, she bends tiny gold wires to form the butterfly shape. Then, she fills in the shapes with colorful enamel. The end result is a truly unique butterfly necklace that everyone will love.

All of our butterfly fine jewelry comes in its own rosewood box. There is also a genuine pacific silvercloth pouch for tarnish-free storage and safe keeping. Each necklace also comes with a 1mm or 2mm, 16- or 18-inch, Italian sterling silver (or gold) serpentine chain.

Our customers absolutely love their unique butterfly necklaces. Read the reviews here.

Want something more petite? Check out our ‘mini’ butterfly necklaces!

Smaller butterfly necklaces in a variety of colors – gold, red, blue, monarch, and rainbow – fine silver jewelry designed and created by artist Shirley Matteson.

Based off the success of her larger butterflies, Shirley was inspired to create a line of smaller butterfly necklaces. Choose from gold, red, or blue. Or, there are also specialty designs, like a rainbow butterfly, or even a mini monarch butterfly necklace!

Plus, the newest member of the collection – a stunning gold mini butterfly necklace, named ‘Blessing.’

Artist Shirley Matteson individually makes each butterfly using the cloisonne technique of fine jewelry making. Cloisonne is an ancient technique for creating colorful designs held in place by tiny wires. In this case, she uses tiny 24k gold wires to create mini, realistic looking butterflies. The wires used in the technique are not only functional, but they add texture and depth to Shirley’s designs.

Of course, even our smaller butterfly jewelry is delivered in its own rosewood box. To keep your fine jewelry safe and tarnish-free when you’re not showing it off, there’s a genuine pacific silvercloth pouch inside the box. Also, each necklace also comes with a 2mm, 16- or 18-inch, Italian sterling silver serpentine chain, and you can specify which length you prefer at checkout.
