MINE OF THE ABYSS
The yellow gold pendant combines a warm-coloured mineral, a Vanadinite from Morocco, with a graceful hippocampus that immediately recalls the sea; symbolically it is a union of nature between the earth element and the water element. The title of the jewel “Mine of the abyss” is a play on words that leads back to the mine from which minerals are extracted but at the same time reminds us how much the sea can be a mine of treasures invisible to us, treasures for its extraordinary fauna which ranges between innumerable fish of a thousand colors, treasures for the history that it has been costing for centuries, if we think of the ships that lie on its seabed. Even the term abyss expresses a double meaning, it is not only connected to the depths of the sea, but also to those of the mines, which in turn cost very precious goods. The pendant is combined with a series of small raw white gold cables that allow it to be worn. The white gold was deliberately left opaque so as not to create an excessive chromatic contrast, in perfect harmony with the rough surface of the mineral.
