The highly stylized reverse design by Canadian artist Jori van der Linde offers a multi-dimensional approach to celebrating the luminous beauty of a butterfly. Inspired by daffodil flowers and curly pea vines, a contemporary floral pattern provides a fanciful garden setting that includes five-petaled flowers, floral buds, leaves and sweeping curly flourishes. All are meticulously engraved and well defined in a proof finish that enhances both the natural light and the sparkle of the butterfly. The jewelry-like addition catches the eye with its mix of semi-precious and precious gemstones, including: a round black sapphire as the butterfly’s head; four pear-shaped amethyst stones that add a violet-colored accent to each wing; and an arrangement of rhodolite stones that add a rich, raspberry-red color.
