Esterka no 1 Tourmaline Necklace by Felicity Peters
This beautiful 12.1 grams 18ct gold and 7 green and blue cut tourmalines necklace is inspired by the tale of Esterka, a beautiful Jewish Polish woman who was the long-time companion of King Kazimir in a town in Eastern Poland called Kazimierz Dolny.
The two were unable to marry because King Kazimir was Roman Catholic, however legend is that Esterka bore the King many sons and they were a very happy couple.
The tourmalines reflect the waters of the River Vistula where the town was situated. They reflect the love between the two people, as durable as the 18ct gold which holds the necklace together. The delicate rose and purple tourmalines mirrors the setting sun on the river. The 18ct gold necklace is featured in a booklet, The sadness of the chairs, which accompanies this beautiful piece made by award winning Western Australian jeweller Felicity Peters. Felicity exhibits nationally and internationally, has won many awards and is in a number of public collections, including the WA Art Gallery, The Powerhouse Museum and the National Gallery of Australia.
