Description
This jeweler's weight is mounted in a 22 karat gold pendant.

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.
