‘NOUR’ pomegranate brooches

$50.00

In Armenian mythology the pomegranate symbolizes abundance, fertility, prosperity and good fortune. It is also believed that a mature pomegranate has 365 seeds – one for each day of the year. Over the years, Armenian artists have used the pomegranate as a theme to symbolize a spectrum of emotions – from pain to hope, rebirth and the survival of a nation.

Nour 1, 2, 5 & 6 brooches reveal motifs delineated from Partzrakash's architectural stone-carved patterns, dating back to the 12th century in Dsegh, Lori province, Armenia. Whereas Nour 3 & 4 reveal motifs delineated from Sevanavank's architectural stone-carved patterns, dating back to the 12th century Sévan, Gegharkunik province, Armenia.

Each pomegranate brooch is an artisanal hand finished piece, with a slightly hammered and textured finish, in 18k gold plated brass.

NARINÉE is a contemporary jewelry collection inspired by Armenian architectural and cultural heritage.
