The focal of this piece, the circle, is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. Without beginning or end (timelessness), without sides or corners, this geometric shape for many represents perfection, unity (togetherness), spirituality, protection, wholeness/totalness, and/or the circle of life. In jewelry, historically, a diamond circle pendant symbolizes eternal love that will never end. Cliff created this necklace to combine the concepts of unity and eternal self love.

The circle pendant is sumptuously encrusted with Swarovski Crystals and Pearls, allowing you to dress it up or down depending on your mood. A flexible beaded rope which

features a new type of embellishment Cliff developed known as pinecone fringe which is made out of vintage Czech Charlotte beads flanks both sides of the focal and adds subtle movement and texture to the overall piece.
