About

A jewel to lift your spirit is this meticulous painting of a robin, carved in the reverse of a round crystal, is the central motif in this creative 18 Kt gold pendant that is a work of Victorian art influenced by Japanese design of the Aesthetic Period, with curved grasses, ferns, branches and pods. Japanese art included sweeping strokes of plants leaning inward from different directions. Flowers of turquoise and natural pearls form a crown around the bale at top pf the pendant, a design that is repeated at bottom with the addition of a suspended turquoise flower. To accomplish the art of this jewel, an artist cut and polished a piece of pure crystal, and miracle of miracles carved a miniature image from the back to the front of the orb, then painting that image, also in reverse. The gold frame is three dimensional sprays of flowers and leaves supporting the flourishing of spring, energy and renewal that the Robin symbolizes. The robin symbolizes the strength of the parental bond as well, for Robins are known to be extremely devoted parents. The pendant is unique. It is 1 1/4 inches in length and in marvelous condition.
