Artemis, the Greek goddess, was patron of this collection. The wearer of this jewellery protects herself from the looks of those who are only superficially curious. Because an elegant embellishment of diamonds over the vitreous enamel draws the first attention to itself.
It is a well-known Art Deco motif, the stylised peony. The “queen of flowers” in ancient times, the “rose without thorns”. Artemis once brought Virbios, son of Theseus, back to life with the healing powers of the peony.
