The reverse by Pandora Young presents a cross-cultural celebration inspired by the ancient tradition of Indian mehndi. A symmetrical arrangement of highly ornate shapes and symbols form a 12-point radial pattern that reflects the calendar year. A prominent henna motif, the lotus, is among the finely detailed elements that emanate from the center, where a colorful Swarovski® crystal represents the March birthstone, aquamarine. A selective application of color complements the stone, while the playful contrast between soft and vivid tones highlights the layered complexity of the engraved artistry.
