Guardian "Felicitas" Necklace - replica of a 7th Century Roman key, Diamonds
The Guardian Collection is Gurhan's salute to the empowerment of women. It is an extremely important collection in the world of jewelry and it is especially important to women. It is a jewelry collection of 10 Keys which Gurhan has cast in bronze and encased in 24 karat gold, precious stones and diamonds. Five of the bejeweled keys are based on ancient Roman Keys and five are based on ancient Viking Keys.
So why are these Keys so important to history and to Gurhan? In these ancient societies, Keys were carried by women as a symbol of their status as the guardians of the home, the family wealth and all that was important to the society. Gurhan wanted to give women today a way to symbolize her empowerment and these Keys are his offering.
Each individual Key has its own name, named after either a Roman or Viking woman, paying deference to the source of Gurhan's inspiration. Each key also comes with a certificate of authenticity, a wooden and bronze box designed by Gurhan, and as a Limited Edition collection, each piece is individually numbered as one of 25 available.
