Our Jewellery

Papillon Belle is a unique range of heirloom quality jewellery inspired by butterflies.

Our Signature Range

Our signature pieces are made from sustainable sourced butterfly wings set in sterling silver frames. You can choose to set your wing as a pendant in glass or acrylic perspex or in a vintage inspired ring or charm covered by a glass dome. Some of the wings are magically iridescent and constantly change colour as they interact with light. In the pendants, both the front and back of the wing are visible and these are usually completely different.

All pieces are handmade to order in South Africa.

We offer a range of settings and materials to suit different budgets. Below is a comparison chart to help you choose your Papillon Belle pendant.
