The phoenix is a legendary male bird with gold and red feathers which has the power of immortality. Legend has it that it lives in the desert, but its life has to be renewed every 500 years. When each end beckons, it's said to make its own nest, a bit like a funeral pyre, with cinnamon twigs and sit on it and consumes itself with fire. When the old body was burnt to ashes, a new egg would be laid and the phoenix is reborn. The phoenix also has the capability of rejuvenating itself when hurt or wounded, making it invincible. The notion of the phoenix is recognised in mythology by various cultures, including Chinese, Greek and Egyptian.
As a symbol, the phoenix represents immortality, resurrection and triumph rising up over adversity. Something with a picture of a phoenix on, such as jewellery, would be appropriate for someone who's overcome a difficult time and is getting on with their life.

More About Peter Stone Jewellery
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.

Even better than it looks on the site. Can't wait to wear it. Love the idea of the phoenix rising from the flames and so bought one for myself to remind myself what I can overcome as have not had a great year so far. Also its the fastest delivery of any site I have bought from so far. Very pleased.
Beautiful piece, bought it for myself, but thought it appropriate to give to my son (going through difficult times) Still want one for myself! So unusual, good weight, looks really good.
