October butterfly: heliconius, a widespread genus with a passion for passion flower and batesian mimicry, where a harmless species has evolved to imitate the warning signals of a harmful species as a defense mechanism. Clever.  Mine has a sizable antique peridot center stone (decidedly not a pretender) with bright carnelian beads added in to the chain.  See the October calendar photo at the end of the post for the reference.
