We named this design after Marie Curie, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize and the first person to win it in 2 categories in radioactivity and chemistry. She is also the woman who helped develop the first X-ray machines.
We dedicate this necklace to Marie's pioneering scientific work which was made more remarkable because of the discrimination which existed against women in science at the time. She was the first female professor at the University of Paris and broke down many barriers for women in science.
This collection is part of our 'Women of Strength' collection inspired by the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid, the national flower of Singapore, which was chosen because of its resilience as a species and the ability to bloom all year round. This collection is done in celebration of Singapore's Bicentennial and uses the Orchid as a symbol to represent strength and resilience.
