3.8 carats of diamondsDelightful: The Caprice Butterfly made by Ulysse Nardin
The delightful butterfly – a flash of color, a flit of wings, an image of myth and muse. Ulysse Nardin flutters in exquisite beauty with the new Caprice Butterfly. Brilliant in blues, with a pop of berry, and delectably adorned in 3.8 carats of diamonds (353 to be exact), the 18-karat white gold, and limited-edition Caprice Butterfly is breathtaking.
Yet, it is the butterfly, itself, produced in Enamel Champlevé that further reveals the artistic mastery of Ulysse Nardin. In this technique, superior care and precision is crucial to its success. Cavities in a thick metal surface are created, filled with moist powdered enamel and fired. Sanding delicately by hand, an essential step maneuvered by the hands of experts, excess enamel is removed, allowing the enamel’s true color and shine to break through. These vibrant, glistening hues are accented by strong metal borders, heightening the meticulous detail of this art form.
Life-like in its illustration and jovial in its essence, the Caprice Butterfly is ideal for the playfully glamorous woman.
