I see this necklace as very angelic. The gold, the pearls, the angel wing all seem to whisper "heaven" to me. My husband sees it as an Olympic piece- with the wing representing the Nike victory wing and the pendant looking like a torch. I love it when the same piece resonates so differently with different people. Art is all up to interpretation. Whatever it means to you, this unique necklace is made of 31 inch long 14k gold filled chain, a vermeil wing, and shell pearl. The flirty tassel is gold plated.
