Two long-necked birds, probably peacocks, embellish this stunning necklace. Peacocks were considered inhabitants of Paradise that symbolised heavenly beauty and immortality. Below the birds, there is a chalice for the water of life. The arch framing the birds is believed to symbolise a church vault. The necklace features the Paradise symbol of early Christian art, where paradise was the kingdom of heaven. This piece of jewellery was inspired by a necklace found in Kernaala, Janakkala, Finland, dating back to the 8th or 9th century.
