In Medieval and ancient art, the mythical Phoenix is often pictured with a halo, which emphasizes the bird's connection to the sun. Much like the sun, it was reported to disappear and reappear miraculously. The Phoenix has become a symbol of renewal, regeneration and rebirth. Most of us are familiar with the feeling of having experienced something that upended your life and forced you to reinvent yourself or otherwise completely change. Do you feel like you've been scorched and then rose from the ashes recently? If so, this Phoenix pendant, made around 1820 with 46(!) rose cut diamonds, might be an animal to remind you of your strength.
