The Egg Pendant has been a symbol within jewellery & design as an interpretation from, what was considered the original appearance, in a painting by Piero della Francesca's Brera Altarpiece dated 1472. Throughout history, across the world, The Egg Pendant has been adorned and sought after, each with their own design additions, often ornate details, used as symbols of emotion and wealth. I have always been fascinated by the beauty and individuality of these pendants and set about searching for a piece to include in this collection. I fell in love with this vintage example. The Egg is carved from a stunning Lapis Lazuli precious stone, complex in depth of the blue colour and framed in an ornated gold plated case, it is simply stunning! Lapis Lazuli is associated with Wisdom, Love & Healing and has been highly prized for thousands of years. This is a beautiful pendant rich in elegance & understated lux; one to create your history with.

Care For Gold Plate & Gold Filled Jewellery ❤️
Normal wear will make the gold fade; longevitiy of the plating will depend on how it is looked after, skin PH levels & frequency of wear. Treat it as a precious piece and it will last. To help maintain the plating, keep in an airtight container or a lined jewellery box, do not wear perfume or creams in the same area that you wear your jewellery. Remove before exercise, swimming, sleeping & avoid humidity. After wear, clean gently with a soft lint free or microfiber cloth.
