Paul Wunderlich: ‘Venus Necklace’ with cultured pearl, .925 sterling silver

Venus is the goddess of love and beauty. She is also called the foam-arisen because after her birth she is said to have risen out of the whitecaps at the island Cyprus. Renaissance painters associated the birth of the goddess of love with a mussel like Sandro Botticelli in his famous painting ‘The Birth of Venus’. No question, Paul Wunderlich was inspired by Botticelli's interpretation. But what did he do with it! With the imagination of an artist and the precision of a mathematician he developed an ideal, which does not deny the source of its representation and yet transcends the reality.

The ‘Venus Necklace’ by Paul Wunderlich consists of a slightly curved oval inside which in a frosted concave there is a shimmering precious cultured pearl. Outside the shell-shaped necklace is polished so that there appears an attractive contrast between the two surfaces, the internal and the external. The necklace is made of solid sterling silver. On the back it is provided with the signature of the artist, with the numbering and the silver stamp.

Necklace of .925 sterling silver with a Japanese cultured pearl, numbered and signed, with the official silver stamp. Height of the pendant 5 cm. Diameter of the hoop 13.5 cm. Every copy is delivered with the certificate signed by the artist.
