The humble peony with its delicately petaled and showy blooms has been cultivated in the East for thousands of years for its beauty and medicinal properties. The peony also makes an appearance in Greek myth. A beautiful nymph named Paeonia caught the attention of the god Apollo, who began to woo her. This made the young nymph blush, and seeing this, jealous Aphrodite turned the girl into a red peony.
Hand forged in Argentium, a premier tarnish-resistant form of sterling silver, this delicate hand fabricated peony blossom measures 1" in diameter and hangs on an 18" sterling silver chain.
