Victoria Bechkam is just one of many celebrities showcasing the popular iconic symbol of the butterfly. But this beautiful bug was heavily steeped in symbology long before celebrities had them incrusted with diamonds. The ancient Greek word for butterfly primarily means “soul” or “mind”.According to Mircea Eliade’s Encyclopedia of Religion, some of the Nagas of Manipur trace their ancestry from a butterfly. In Japan the butterfly is the personification of a person’s soul. One Japanese superstition says that if a butterfly enters your guestroom and perches behind the bamboo screen, the person whom you most love is coming to see you. In Chinese culture, two butterflies flying together symbolize love. Also, Butterfly Lovers is a famous Chinese folktale. Whether it be the soul, or an omen of love, don’t let the summer pass without adorning yourself with the symmetry of this beautiful winged guardian by Bel Air Jewelry.
