The Astonishing Acorn

7 Dec 2015 6:08 PM -
Wow we have been so busy and it's been a challenge keeping up with creating original pieces to display in our showrooms.  There's just not enough hours in the day. 
A normal day at our galleries consists of
  • customer jewellery repairs,
  • consults with customers about their special pieces of jewellery under creation, new customers who are looking to gain confidence in what jeweller they should use for their next custom make
  • and also assisting the tourists who come to town to purchase their very own Abrolhos Island Pearl or Australian diamond jewellery.....
..... it is busy.

But finally our newest piece on the floor is this 'Astonishing Acorn'.  I know when we purchased this Australian South Sea pearl, we just had to have it.  It was so big, so beautiful and we purchased it over 6 months ago... that's how long it has taken to finally have it made into a work of Art.  The initial concept was created by Zanah - the manager, then made to life by Steven our wonderful in house jeweller.

Custom made in 18ct yellow, white and rose gold pendant featuring 6x 0.04ct RBC, 1 x 0.15ct pear shaped diamond and then the star of the show is the 14mm x 20mm South Sea Pearl.

Acorn: During the Norman Conquest, the English carried dried acorns to protect themselves from the brutalities of the day. Considered to be an emblem of luck, prosperity, youthfulness and power, the Acorn is a good luck symbol indeed! It also represents spiritual growth.

The acorn, as a seed, is also a symbol of growth and unlimited potential.  The acorn, in its dormant state, reminds us that we, too need periods of rest/dormancy and periods of growth.  We, too, must look to the oak and understand the importance of living within the seasons, with grace and harmony.   The acorn teaches us about our own potential–how one acorn can grow into a massive oak and seed a whole forest.  The oak tree is only partially seen–the massive root system of an oak tree is as tall and wide as the tree itself. 

This teaches us that there is much to living and our spiritual experiences that we can’t see, and that even though the roots can’t be seen, we can see their influence.

I am looking forward to seeing the next original design.

PS - although I did not grow this pearl, but helped select it to showcase in our gallery!
