Designers Van Cleef & Arpels decided to create these butterfly jewelry pieces named the 'Papillons Collection,' incorporating a broad range of colors, shapes and sizes.

Implications - As a motif in clothing and jewelry, butterflies act as a symbol of beauty as well as freedom. Adorning oneself with a butterfly accessory is not only a fashionable choice, but appeals to the wearer's desire to "take flight." With their vibrant colors and gorgeous wing patterns, butterflies hold a sense of magical appeal to any fashion consumer wishing to be "free" of everyday demands.
