One of Lee Downey's beautiful butterfly motif buckles, this piece is somewhat more delicate and understated in appearance than the others, as its cream-colored aesthetic produces a softly radiant tone. The base is hand-wrought sterling silver with 22k gold accents, the wings and body are hand-carved Tahitian mother of pearl, and the gemstones are white sapphires.
Lee Downey Mother of Pearl Fleur-de-Lis
1 in stock
This buckle features a hand-wrought sterling silver base, and a hand-carved Tahitian mother of pearl fleur-de-lis motif with a green sapphire at the center and four yellow sapphires surrounding. There is a subtle but pleasing correspondence of texture between the mother of pearl's almost mottled surface and the darkened sterling silver's chiseled, somewhat granular appearance. Flowing sterling silver filigree and smooth mother of pearl accents provide a textural balance, completing this buckle with a beautiful symmetry.
