WONDERFUL RUBY, DIAMOND, EMERALD 9 CARAT GOLD OWL PENDANT
Item Code:AJRP002

A rare Victorian pendant of exceptional detail depicting an Owl in three dimensional form, a true delight.

Findley hand crafted in 9 carat Gold with deep cativting Ruby eyes, the Owl is perched under two acorns of Emeralds and sparkling Diamonds, suspended by a Diamond leaf.

The Emeralds are a lively spring green in colour, accentuated by ten old cut sparkling Diamonds.

The leaf has a further six old cut sparkling Diamonds which really brings this Victorian treasure to life..........

The Owl dates to the Victorian era 1890s.

The owl is sacred to the Greek goddess of learning, Athena and is even depicted on some Greco-Roman currency as a symbol of status, intelligence and of course, wealth.

Native Americans associated the meaning of owl with wisdom, foresight, and keeper of sacred knowledge. This may largely be due to the fact that the owl is a great foreteller of weather conditions.

Also its ability to see at night is legend among the Native Americans, and this attribute would be invoked during ceremonies when an oracle of secret knowledge was
required.

Similarly, West African and Aboriginal Australian cultures viewed the owl as a messenger of secrets, kin to sorcerers, as well as companions to seers, mystics and
medicine people.

During medieval times in western and central Europe it was fabled that owls were actually priestesses (witches) and wizards in disguise.

Excellent condition especially for its age with all the original stones and no repairs.

Sure to be notied!
