A luscious, lemony yellow antique glass seal of The Three Graces looks as though the beauties are captured in a piece of amber. No matter which way you tilt and view this piece, the iconic imagery looks as thought it's living in three dimensional glory. The Three Graces depicts the three daughters of Greek god Zeus. Each daughter bestows a particular gift on humanity: Euphrosyne (joy), Aglaia (radiance), and Thalia (the bloom of beauty). We sat with this one for quite awhile, listening to how this seal wanted to be presented, and we felt a connection to Venus since The Three Graces are closely related to her. Botticelli's Birth of Venus kept coming to mind, so we played with similar shapes, different yet evoking a similar aethestic quality.
Surrounded by a Victorian era-inspired buttercup setting of sumptuous 18k yellow gold, each buttercup is lined with graduated diamonds on an underlay of patina that makes the diamonds POP with scintillation and fire! We are absolutely in love with this piece - a one-of-a-kind statement necklace to be sure, suitable for the dressiest of occasions and yet perfectly fabulous with a t-shirt and jeans. Modern. Elegant. Playful. With a nod to its history. And who amongst us wouldn't want a reminder to live joyfully, whilst radiating our inner beauty?!? Perfect for all of life's moments.
