The Paloma Picasso Olive Leaf Vine Pendant is delicately beautiful in its simplicity.
The charming copyrighted design alone makes this a very attractive piece of jewelry for any woman from your most cherished friend to your boss’s wife.
But this pendant is more than just another pretty necklace. As a universal symbol of peace and harmony, the Olive Leaf delivers a particularly welcome message for this Christmas season.
I like the sterling silver rendition. You may prefer the 18k gold or 18k rose gold.
Tiffany rightly boasts that Paloma Picasso has captured the world’s attention with her bold style. The Olive Leaf Vine Pendant is somewhat of a departure for Ms. Picasso. Other pieces in her Olive Leaf Collection such as the cuffs and band ring use the same motif with an eye-catching demand for attention.
The Vine Pendant shines in its understatement and lack of embellishment. Its appeal rests on the rendering of the spare, almost line-drawn, quality of the delicate olive leaf.
Now, I’m not saying I would turn down the Vine Pendant wrought in 18k white gold and encrusted with diamonds. Santa could slip that in my stocking without stopping to wonder if I would reject his gift.
I just find the $200 price puts the sterling silver Vine Pendant within the range of what the rest of us might pay to send a message of peace, love and harmony on Christmas day. And Tiffany’s .925 sterling silver standard of purity is lovely.
The Paloma Picasso Olive Leaf Collection is available at Tiffany & Co. stores across the country. Tiffany will dispatch your gift free of charge if you order online. If you order by 3 p.m. Eastern on Dec. 23rd, your present will arrive by Christmas.
