This small, electroformed vial necklace can be used to hold any keepsake object. Often they are requested as jewelry to hold ashes from cremation of a loved one or pet.
The top of this vial has been electroformed with a small round opal and a real bee. The ancient Greeks believed opals gave their owners the gift of prophecy and guarded them from disease. Europeans have long considered the gem a symbol of hope, purity, and truth.
Throughout the modern & ancient world the bee is a symbol of wisdom, birth and rebirth & industry. Bees, like fairies, are often considered guardians of the natural world, eternally linked with love, magic and romance.
