Symbolic of paradise, a portrait of Virgin Mary—as depicted in a c. 1428 painting of her in the Ghent Altarpiece—abides behind the gates. Its burnished silver metal finish is ornamented in enamels and crystals.

Our Heaven's Gate devotional necklace commemorates the panel of Mary from the altarpiece with designer Shelley Cooper's interpretation of architectural elements of the Cathedral of St. Bavo. Since its creation, the Ghent altarpiece has been considered one of the masterpieces of European art and a world treasure.

Over the centuries the panels have come close to being destroyed during outbreaks of war and ideological controversies. They were moved and damaged by fire, while some were sold, and still others taken during wars. All the panels were finally returned to the Cathedral of Saint Bavo following World War I.
  • 38¼" chain, 2¼ x 1¼" pendant.
  • Metal, brass, glass, and crystal stones.
  • Handcrafted in Los Angeles, California.
  • Sweet Romance Jewelry.
