Just as the caterpillar is protectively encased in its Chrysalis before immerging as a stunningly beautiful butterfly the Nephrite Jade cabochon on our Chrysalis brooch is nestled within the sleek smooth curves of the surrounding panel. This reminds the wearer of a stage in their life where they feel they need to rest and recuperate before blossoming into a life filled with new possibilities.
