Belted Beauty Moth Ring


This moth ring is modelled on the beautifully shaped Belted Beauty Moth – the male of the species, seeing as the female is actually wingless. It is rare British coastal moth which exists in a small number of pockets across the UK.

The moth sits at an angle on your finger, and is fully modelled on the underneath as well as on the visible parts. It measures 32mm from wingtip to wingtip.


Inspiration for my Belted Beauty Moth Ring

I was inspired to model this Belted Beauty Moth following an enquiry for a smaller version of my Sussex Emerald Moth Pendant. As a result I researched other species of British Moth and stumbled upon the Belted Beauty (Lycia Zonaria).

Similarly to the Sussex Emerald, this is a highly localised species in the UK. It lives on sand hills and salt marshes in a few scattered localities, in North Wales, North England and Scotland. Interestingly, the female moths are wingless, however the males have wings and fly in March and April (I guess mine is a man then). The larvae feed on low growing plants such as willow and burnet rose.

Therefore, this moth has great features in common with my other moths, such as feathery antennae and mix of subtle and striking markings. And it was about time that I had a moth ring to accompany my other moth jewellery. It turns out that I have rather a fondness for moths, having so far modelled 4 species!
