This jeweler's weight is mounted in a 22 karat
For jeweler's both ancient and modern the use of
weights is crucial for accurate measurements,
and this very beautiful example demonstrates
precision balance with a fine sense of artistry.
The head of the swan is nestled on its back as if
asleep, comfortable in its own feathers. Elegance
is achieved through lines and gentle curves as
precise as the weight itself. Set in the delicately
ornate pendant this swan exemplifies the use of
creating art for a practical purpose, achieved
here with such refined sensitivity.
