Purple Butterfly Necklace – ‘The Royal We’

Fine purple butterfly necklace designed and created by artist Shirley Matteson.

Taking inspiration from butterflies of all colors, Shirley has created a gorgeous, purple butterfly necklace named ‘The Royal We’. Ranging from deep purply tones to paler pinker hues, these purple tones highlight the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The result is an intriguing purple butterfly that’s sure to stand out in your fine jewelry collection.

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.

The Purple Butterfly Necklace Jewel

Shirley uses a technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ to create these purple butterflies. First, she bends tiny 24k gold wires to form the butterfly shape. Then, she fills in the shapes with colorful enamel. The end result is a truly unique purple butterfly necklace that everyone will love.

All of Shirley’s butterfly 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 2mm, 16- or 18-inch, Italian sterling silver serpentine chain.

Purple Symbolism

If you’re looking for a color that is rich with symbolism, purple is it! Purple can represent royalty, luxury, creativity, peace, independence, or even mystery. The deep amethyst of this Cloisonné butterfly is a color that stands out and gets noticed, for sure. The layers of purples in this butterfly necklace can bring calm, focus, insight, or help bring forth innovation and new ideas. Purple is the perfect combination of the bright passion associated with reds and the calm serenity often linked to blue tones.

This purple butterfly necklace can also be seen as more quirky. The addition of bright pink tones adds a little touch of whimsy and interest, while still remaining stately and sophisticated. It would make the perfect gift for the creative, independent, or even mysterious soul in your life.
