Heart Pin Pendant with Garnet

Take a closer look - the sterling silver details deserve close inspection to appreciate the subtleties in the balanced design. On either side of the garnet is a triskele, the triple spiral symbol found in many cultures, across centuries. It is seen on pottery from ancient Greece, on prehistoric monuments in Ireland and it's also the iconic shape for the 45 RPM record insert. Indeed, this symbol has been embraced world-wide, throughout history and its meaning is varied and diverse. The uniform petals extend into the carving, in perfect proportion, following the patterns of sacred geometry and mandalas.
This graceful pendant also has a pin back, so you can wear it as a necklace or pendant. The base of the heart is carved from fossilized mammoth tusk ivory, which has lain in the ground for tens of thousands of years. This ancient ivory’s creamy color and age-old story give it a special place in the hearts of the artists and craftspeople who use it in their designs.
