Large Porte Ouvrant (keyhole) necklace pendant with a 9ct yellow gold door and frame, the door set with diamonds.

Porte Ouvrant

As we start to emerge from Lockdown, this pendant feels amuletic in design with its opening door leading the wearer to new ways of thinking, new opportunities, new beginnings at the start of a new era. The beautiful key-hole outline shape of the Moorish doors always seems to invite one to look in, to enquire and to wonder. In the bustling Medina with my sketch book I imagined doorways with swivelling doors that would have differing decoration on each side of the door and through them I created new imaginary vistas. I have called it Porte Ouvrant because I like the French turn of phrase that suggests that the door is not just opened, but opening.

Diamond

Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
