The Nautilus Shell.
In nature, the Nautilus shell is a naturally occurring example of the "Divine Proportion". In cross section, the chambers of the Nautilus shell vary in size at a mathematical ratio of 1.618 to 1, progressing upward or downward into infinity.
Over the centuries, this magical proportion has been humanly recognized as a universally pleasing composition, and is found often coincidentally, or planned, in art, music, nature, and physics - It is believed to disclose a golden harmony behind our wordly existence and physical laws. This jewelry piece is an exact and mathematically accurate proportional diagram.
In Sterling Silver, this piece weighs about 11 grams and is 1 3/8" tall. It is hung on a 20" diamond cut cable style chain.
