The Importance of the Monarch Butterfly

Of course, the Monarch butterfly is well known for its iconic orange wings, with its black outlines and white spotted highlights. This jewel recreates the design of the Monarch. The artist uses brilliant orange colors combined with accents in bold black and white. Tiny gold 24k gold wires forming the partitions of the Cloisonné butterfly blend in perfectly with the yellow and orange tones of the Monarch’s wings. This is quite the unique gem!

Monarchs are also one of the most commonly recognizable butterflies, owing their unique design and bold colors. Perhaps they were named ‘Monarch’ in honor of King William III, otherwise known as the ‘Prince of Orange’. Whatever the origin of their name, these butterflies are truly the kings and queens, and can represent the strength and trust of a leader.

And, we all know that monarch butterflies are famous for their migration, truly a phenomena of the natural world. Each year, monarchs fly up to 3,000 miles on their journey. How, you ask? Actually, they have a magnetic compass to help them navigate the globe. Monarch butterflies have spread all over the world. As of now, they can even be found in Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, Portugal, and Spain.

In addition, these butteflies also bring the symbolism of endurance and a belief in staying the course to these gifts. As a result, monarchs make a great gift for those who have completed long and arduous tasks, perhaps for graduations, retirements, or even marathon runners.
