A petite kinetic flower locket with the profound reminder "And this too shall pass away".
"This too shall pass" is a Persian adage. It reflects on the temporary nature, or ephemerality, of the human condition- that neither the bad, nor good moments in life last indefinitely. The sentiment is often expressed in literature throughout history and across cultures, but the specific phrase seems to have originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets.
It is known in the Western world primarily due to a 19th-century retelling of Persian fable by the English poet Edward FitzGerald, and notably employed in a speech by Abraham Lincoln"
Petite and delicate, this flower features a warm amber center and the words etched into the petals, visible when the flower is in bloom. Edward FitzGerald's name is etched in sterling and hangs from a leaf tag on the stem.
On a 22" sterling silver chain with a handmade clasp.
