We say: A really solid pendant. The dryad seems to have a cheeky little grin, which makes you smile. The runner for the chain is a solid loop of silver at the top of the back side. We'd advise a slightly thicker chain for this pendant.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Tree lore, nature spirit, nymph
This tree gets its name from tree lore as being the home of a dryad - a wood nymph or spirit who lives in a tree. Each dryad is specifically linked to one tree and, when the tree eventually dies, the dryad is believed to die too.
Ancient myths describe dryads as shy creatures who flee from the sight of human beings. They're said to be shadowy creatures that hop and fly in the trees, heard like the rustle of leaves in the wind.
Dryads and dryad trees have featured extensively in myths, folklore and fiction. Author C. S. Lewis mentioned dryads in his books about the land of Narnia and Hans Christian Anderson wrote a fairy tale about a dryad who lived in a chestnut tree.
Wearing the symbol of the dryad tree represents a connection with nature, spirits and a love of trees.
Peter Stone Jewellery
- High quality jewellery manufacturer
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
