Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Pink Sapphire Pearl Rubies Georgian Porcelain Mourning Locket Necklace - Emiline Necklace
A delicate strand of hand-linked creamy cultured pearls has been intercepted with stations of exquisite and rare faceted Sleeping Beauty turquoise ovals, then flanked with dainty smooth pink sapphire ovals, to create this beautiful necklace. The focal point of the necklace is a natural pearl and turquoise Georgian porcelain mourning locket, depicting a cherub holding a sweet little bird in a small cage. Researching the meaning of this symbol, I discovered that birds in cages are symbolic of weddings and prosperity. Another precious surprise is included with this meaningful pendant - a gold vermeil Napoleonic bee floats in a sea of minuscule pink rubies, safely ensconced behind the glass hinged door of the locket. This necklace is a beautiful and meaningful love token that would be perfect for a bride.
