Item Ref: VA07159

V&A Jewellery - Forbidden fruit range - the inspiration for this decorative gold pendant is a woven woollen fabric by William Morris featuring a vine and pomegranates.  The pomegranate is is a symbol of fruitfulness in both Judaism and Christianity. Some Jewish scholars believe it was the pomegranate and not the apple that was the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden.  The pendant is made in gold-plated silver (10.44 gms) with vine leaves and a single fruit picked out in green, brown and yellow hand-enamelling - a delicate and beautifully shaped piece.

This piece was inspired from an object in The Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
