The scallop necklace is inspired by the symbolism of ancient Roman art and architecture. It is a prevalent theme portrayed in buildings and monuments all over the city, as well as in paintings and sculptures. In ancient Roman art, the scallop is depicted as a symbol of fertility and new life. One example of this is the birth of Venus painting by Sandro Botticelli, where Roman Goddess Venus is symbolically born and rising from a shell.
Bold but delicate, the scallop motif that is found in so many familiar corners of Rome served as inspiration for this timeless piece.
