This graceful geisha necklace from our celebrated geisha jewelry collection features the lovely entertainer in repose, enjoying a private moment all her own away from the bustle of the world.
The traditional Japanese geisha has become a singularly feminine and enigmatic symbol. She is an entertainer - an artist in her own right - and like many entertainers she is elusive, though she may live a life in the public eye. She is beauty and grace personified, and yet this is simply the image she chooses to portray. Our geisha jewelry seeks to capture these beauties in unexpected moments such as this one featuring the geisha in a rarely seen moment of rest.
A geisha is called kary-kai when she completes her training and enters society. This means -flower and willow world,- and it's easy to see why this image has come to represent geisha in their idealized grace. This geisha necklace is called Flower Geisha in part for this reason, and in part because of the intricate flower patterns that decorate her kimono.
The carved ivory geisha face is hand made from ancient mammoth ivory, which has lain in the earth for centuries before being brought once again to light. This ancient ivory emerges as a cream toned material that is prized the world over for its quality and history.
This geisha necklace makes a gorgeous statement when worn with a V-neck or plunging neckline - a piece that is sure to steal the show every time you wear it.
