Artists and photographers have long struggled with the question of how to distinguish between a sunset and a sunrise. Without context, the image itself can appear as either. Yet that same duality also makes for a lovely vignette, which is our intention with this handcrafted necklace: that an ending is also a beginning.
Part of our Vignette Jewelry Line, the Sunrise / Sunset Necklace (and its matching set of earrings) is an homage not only to the beauty of the sun over the horizon, but also to the profound nature of endings, beginnings, and our own perception.
We hope that this thoughtful necklace will serve as a constant reminder that when one chapter ends, another begins. As the sun sets in one location, it is rising in another; in the same way, we can also choose to see an experience as either an end or a beginning, a loss or a gain. This piece makes a lovely gift for anyone who knows the value of shifting their perspective, and/or for anyone who loves to get lost in the transcendent beauty of a sunset or sunrise.
Inscribed on the back is the phrase Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn. - Emerson
This necklace comes on an adjustable 16"-18" black cord with a lobster clasp. The pendant is an imperfect circle with a diameter of 1 3/16". Pewter is an excellent choice of jewelry for even the most sensitive skin types because it is lead-free, nickel-free, and hypoallergenic.
