Birth of Venus: Pearl and Sapphire Neck Crown

Sale price Price $750.00 Regular price

Unlike other gemstones that are mined from the earth, pearls are created when an irritant lodges itself in the mantle or soft tissue of a living mollusk. It’s then coated with layers and layers of nacre—as a form of self-defense on the part of the mollusk.

In Greek mythology, pearls are said to be the tears of joy shed by Aphrodite, the goddess of love. 

Venus herself is depicted as THE PEARL herself in the famous Sandro Botticelli painting, where he depicts Venus as being delivered to earth in an open shell, like a mythical pearl.

Pearls hold innate boundaries as they are formed in self-defense, yet they hold inside their inner core the depth of the compassionate heart to unconditionally feed the inner self unconditional love. 

These particular pearls hold that Coco Chanel peachy salmon pink tone and are beyond classic and timeless. 

Paired with one of the most rare tones and variations of sapphire: Padparadscha sapphires. Which are the most lovely peach we have ever seen.
