Description

This 14K gold pendant is the perfect piece for all Queen Bees.  I replicated the crest of Anne, Duchess of Brittany, adorned with her actual crown, as the background for the pendant.  Anne later became the Queen of France and is the only woman to be married to two French kings.  She was queen consort of France from 1491-1498 and 1499 until her death.  The honey bee is considered to be the oldest emblem of the sovereigns of France.  Due to its industrious habits the bee came to symbolize hard work, diligence , industriousness, orderliness, vigilance  and zeal.  Because it is the producer of honey the bee also symbolizes sweetness and benevolence.  After much consideration as an admirer of the insect's industrious nature, Napoleon Bonaparte--a quite ambitious being himself--chose the bee as the predominant emblem of his reign. With it the royal crown and the little bee this pendant melds centuries of history and symbolism together.  I like to think a little honey bee simply landed in the center of the crest and claimed her crown.

Clasp

I am very pleased with the necklace and is exactly as pictured. The only problem is the clasp is so tiny I cannot get a grip on it to open or close it. I will have to find a jeweler I can trust to change the clasp so I can wear it.
