The butterflies featured in Insectsy jewelry and products are hand raised in distant and exotic farms and sanctuaries throughout the world. The farms serve multiple wonderful purposes. In addition to providing jobs in rural areas, they encourage education and preservation of precious natural habitat. Some farms even release a percentage of their butterflies back into the habitat to bolster native populations.
Sadly, a butterfly's lifespan is typically pretty short- usually just a couple of weeks once they have reached the butterfly phase of their life. After passing naturally, butterflies are collected from the ground, and we are honored to preserve their beauty, so they can be enjoyed and appreciated for years to come.
Insectsy Real Butterfly Resin Jewelry is made with the highest quality jeweler’s grade resin, ensuring optimal clarity and durability. Each pair dangles from hypoallergenic stainless steel earwires and are featured on an earring card with a brief description of our sustainable and cruelty free sourcing practices.
