The butterflies are sustainably raised in the Peruvian Amazon area and are collected once they have lived their natural life span. The preservation and silversmithing is also done in Peru.
As a bonus, this piece can also be suspended from a chain as a pendant, or, if you have size 4 fingers, worn as a ring. The silver frame is stamped "925".
