This opulent Good Fortune Pomegranate Necklace and Earrings is rich in cultural significance—the pomegranate signifying righteousness and abundance. Masterfully employing 16th-century Ottoman jewelry-making techniques, Turkish artisans create detailed lost-wax brass pomegranate castings. Hand-polished and gold-plated, they are then oxidized to emulate the look of rare antiques. With color-enhanced jade “seeds” and crystal embellishments, the locket centers a strand of freshwater pearls, tea-soaked to achieve a complimentary vintage patina; the earrings with turquoise accents dangle from sterling silver earwires.
