Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Daphne Brooch and Pendant by Ying Li This brooch expresses the theme of beauty and faith through the story of Daphne, the Laurel Nymph of Greek mythology. Because it is not well known in China, it's necessary to present the story in a suitable way to make this design understandable to Chinese audiences. To create this piece of jewelry, one element is the laurel leaf from the story, and the other element is the moon, considered a symbol of love in China. It can be a brooch or a pendant. The center stone is a 10.745ct rupee red tourmaline, set in 18K white gold with diamonds and mother-of-pearl.
