Alabama Jeweler and Timeless Designs partner to create Renaissance Necklace for local Shakespeare Festival

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival (ASF) approached Lyle Fields, owner of Marquirette’s Exquisite Jewelry, to design a Signature Renaissance Necklace to mark ASF’s 25th Anniversary in Montgomery, Alabama.  The inspiration was found in a 15th century Hugo van der Goes painting entitled The Portinari Altarpiece, portraying one of the daughters of a Florentine banker wearing a necklace with rows of pearls, with a gem between every pair of pearls, and a lily-shaped jeweled pendant with a suspended, large drop-shaped pearl.  The extravagant piece is paired with a simple gold link chain billowing two elegantly thickset gold metal plates decorated with repousse geometric motifs.
