My eye is unfailingly xanax online caught by a butterfly in the things that surround me: clothes, artworks, and certainly in jewellery! This delicate, colourful insect has been one of my favourite motifs for as long as I can remember: its perfect symmetry and vivid colours fuelling my lust for life! So when I laid my eyes on Glenn Spiro‘s Papillon ring crafted from rubies, diamonds and titanium as I knew this was the perfect jewel for me.

Don’t you think that butterflies are one of nature’s most intricate embellishments? The dainty creatures flit and flutter, spreading their wings to showcase the beauty from within. Recently many fashion houses – Gucci, Sophia Webster, Nancy Gonzalez, Alexander McQueen, Mary Katrantzou and Valentino instantly come to mind – have been inspired by butterfly’s delicate shape and by the intricate blend of colours that adorn its wings.


Butterflies have several positive connotations with them. They are a symbol of joy and transformation. To some, they are reminiscent of halcyon childhood days, summers spent chasing butterflies with a net. To others they remind to let go of old behaviour and embracing the next phase, making the most of the new opportunities. Having a butterfly as part of our outfit should add an element of happiness to your day or night!


Butterflies have inspired one of Glenn Spiro’s statement rings, a life-size large butterfly, crafted from titanium, rubies and diamonds. This very jewel caught my eye as I was strolling through Harrods‘ elegant fine jewellery labyrinth, where Glenn Spiro recently opened a concession.


The dazzling ring whose setting is made from titanium – one of Glenn Spiro’s signature – is as almost as light as a real-life butterfly! The light weight makes this somewhat chunky jewel surprisingly comfortable to wear.

As you move your fingers, the wings of the butterfly slowly open and close, bringing this bejewelled butterfly back to life. Since we tend to express our emotions with our hands, the more passionate you become, the more animated the butterfly adorning your hand will become. This remarkable ring will certainly be a show-stopper in any place, as any movement in fine jewellery is fascinating, as it quite an elaborate and complex process to achieve it!
