Vivienne Westwood Orb
23 May 2013
Originally a clothing label, world renowned fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has evolved her brand, so accessories are now also made available for you. Her punk attitude and cutting edge yet classic collections, is reflected greatly in her designs. It is a fashion forward brand, which is widely recognised for its individuality and uninhibited spirit.
The more popular items of jewellery in Silver Tree's collection adopt Vivienne Westwood’s orb logo and are beautifully designed with a quirky twist on high-end fashion jewellery.
So, what does Vivienne Westwood's Orb mean?
The Vivienne Westwood Orb resembles Sovereigns Orb which is one of the British crown jewels, that was created for the coronation of King Charles II. The jewelled aspect of the Orb links to Westwood's anchored position in the British fashion industry.
The Sovereign's Orb is a hollow gold sphere and around the middle sits a band of pearls and gemstones with an amethyst and gold cross sitting on the top. This Orb is a religious symbol that represents the Monarch's role as Defender of the Faith. This style of orb is similar to the Pearly Queen Bas Relief Pendant..
