Papillon Necklace

A pretty ephemeral glass butterfly button dangles at the end of this pendant necklace ready to launch into flight. Luckily it's anchored by an antique metal button linked to a vintage tourmaline mirror opal glass doublet.

Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.

This necklace features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.

In this piece (from top to bottom):

  • Small antique brass button, circa 1880-1900, chosen from our collection
  • Vintage German doublet in tourmaline goldstone mirror opal glass
  • Hand-pressed glass butterfly button, made today in the Czech Republic in antique molds
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Chain adjusts via a sliding magnetic clasp from a 15" choker to 32" long pendant
