Vintage rainbow opal and gold are surrounded by rhodocrosite in this sublime mosaic pendant. The necklace is woven seed pearls, my queen.
Luminous, iridescent and reminiscent of the moon, the pearl is one of the most ancient and beloved of all gems, considered to be of divine origin, sacred. They are the only precious gem produced in a sea creature rather than from a mine in the earth.
The gem of queens from Cleopatra to Empress Theodora of Byzantium, to Queen Elizabeth the 1st, the pearl represents purity, love and sexuality, and is said to hold hidden wisdom.
Thank you, darling Sophanista.
