The mystical splendor and opulent mystery of the Far East is embodied by the grace and tranquility of the classic temple pagoda. Crafted from natural materials such as wood, stone, and metal, pagodas form perfectly balanced tiers of graduated spiritual beauty. The pagoda can be traced to the 3rd century stupa, a dome shaped monument used as a commemorative mounment for storing sacred relics. In time, the architecture of Chinese towers and Chinese pavillions blended into pagoda architecture spreading throughout East and Southeast Asia. The Mystical Pagoda Collection utilizes these ancient masterly geometric forms in gently hammered sterling silver pieces with natural mother of pearl accents. The pagoda’s intricate latticework inspired creative and imaginative stacked and layered designs culminating in a distinct collection of modern CG signature styles.
