Pewter openwork knots with a heart at the centre with a cultured freshwater pearl drop on tin-plated or surgical steel curb chain.

The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts.
To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.

Cultured pearls can be divided into salt-water and freshwater varieties, and account for over 95% of world production.
Freshwater pearls are grown in mussels when a nucleus of shaped mantle from another mollusc is placed inside.
A mussel can grow between 10 and 20 pearls!
Traditional metaphysical properties for the June birthstone pearl are modesty, chastity and purity.
The pearl is also used to enhance personal integrity.
