Description

Beloved Necklace

Inscribed in Hebrew: `Ani l`dodi v`dodi li` which translates as `I am my beloved`s and my beloved is mine` from Song of Solomon 6:3, a declaration of mutual love and affection from some of the most passionate verses in the Bible. The Song of Solomon can be read on many levels. On the surface it is about romantic love, but it can also be read as an allegory about the relation of the finite to the infinite, making it even more complex. Traditionally though, the verse has been given as a token of love when engraved on jewelry.

The inscription is taken from the Old Testament and is reflective of the Jerusalem setting in the Met Opera`s production of Nabucco.

  • Sterling Silver
  • Mobius Pendant: 1` diameter

History

Verdi's Nabucco

Verdi's NabuccoVerdi’s biblical drama about King Nebuchadnezzar and the exiled Israelites premiered in Milan’s Teatro alla Scala in 1842. It was one of the composer’s earliest triumphs, and is considered by many to be the true beginning of his artistic career. The work is renowned for its rousing choruses, especially “Va, pensiero” (“Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”), which is now regarded as a kind of unofficial national anthem by many Italians who find in it moving echoes of their own historic quest for a nation-state.
