Bethrothal... youth ended, freedom relinquished. This fantastic piece is done in honor of Leonardo da Vinci's betrothal portrait of Ginevra de Benci. Rumored to be a reluctant bride, da Vinci's work captures a forlorn expression and wistful quality. This gorgeous necklace features a black jewel at the center, deep and unfathomable. Scrollwork surrounds it, with words etched in. At the top. "Iuniperus", meaning juniper-- associated with the girl, and a symbol of sorrow and pain. Accompanying it the message "Virtvtem Forma Decorat"-- Beauty Adorns Virtue. An incredible way to add a touch of history and mystery to your look!
