Butterflies are a symbol of freedom, transformation and growth. The creature’s beautiful colours have been an inspiration to many artists and designers and this is no different in 2022. More and more jewellery and accessory designers are introducing their spring-summer collections with clear influences from butterflies. Whether through their vibrant colour choices or using literal depictions of the animal, there is no denying butterflies are in. Below we have made a list of our favourite butterfly accessories for summer 2022.
The Swarovski Lilia line is elegant yet playful. The collection showcases sparkling butterfly designs which are perfect whether you decided to wear them to a casual or formal event. The Swarovski Lilia drop earrings feature 5 butterflies each. Each butterfly is set with different coloured pave crystals. The rainbow design of the earrings is sure to bring the gentle touch of spring and summer to any wardrobe. The earrings are rose gold-tone plated.
Another piece from this collection is this beautiful rose gold tone-plated Y necklace. The multiple butterflies give the appearance as if they have been frozen mid-flight. Each butterfly is paved with multiple white crystals which create a magnificent shining necklace. The necklace measures between 38 and 43 cm in length and secures with a lobster clasp at the back.
If you like the butterfly theme but you’d like something more subtle, we suggest this Olivia Burton Sparkle Butterfly pendant necklace. The necklace has a delicately feminine design. The butterfly’s wings are made up of 2 marquise-cut crystals and 2 round-cut crystals. Its body is a single metal bead.
A beautiful addition to the butterfly trend is this Olivia Burton Sparkle Butterfly watch. The watch is made of stainless steel, however, in order to accent its dial colours, the 30 mm case and the Milanese mesh bracelet have been plated in a rose gold colour. The case and bracelet both feature a polished finish. Yet the dial is what truly makes this watch stand out. It has a pink to pale blue gradient. Faux pearls and crystals are set into the dial at random. It also features a mother-of-pearl butterfly as if fluttering in between the pearls and crystals. The watch does not have any hour-markers. A set of rose-gold coloured baton hands complete the dial design. The watch is powered by a quartz movement and should not be submerged in water as it is only splash-resistant.
Last but not least, our final suggestion for those who are aiming for subtlety is this Nomination Composable Classic symbol. The nomination link is made of stainless steel. It features a bonded yellow gold butterfly in the centre. The butterfly itself is decorated with vibrant rainbow enamel stripes. The charm can be added to the length of any Nomination bracelet for a truly customized look through the brand’s ingenious spring mechanism.
