"Tale as Old as Time" Pearl Necklace with Rose Charm
“Well, dear Father,” she said, “as you insist upon it, I beg that you will bring me a rose. I have not seen one since we came here, and I love them so much.” - Madame de Villeneuve
Elegant, delicate and feminine, just what we imagine Belle would wear at a soirée at the castle. This handmade baroque pearl necklace with an intricate golden rose charm finds its inspiration in the tale of La Belle et La Bête, the story of a beautiful maiden who learns to love a beast. La Belle et la Bête was written down for the first time in the 18th century by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, and has known many adaptations. The symbol of the rose makes its first appearance when Belle asks her father, a merchant, to bring her a rose upon his return. The merchant plucks a rose from a mysterious garden surrounding a castle and is confronted by the Beast, who demands that the merchant send him one of his daughters in payment for his theft. The rest is history...
