The artistically unique style of the 18K gold plated sterling silver "Bee" is a work of art in its own right. Created in 925 sterling silver in a high mirror polish, then plated with 18K gold with lustrous craftsmanship and luminosity, it measures 1 3/8 inches wide by 3/4 inches high by 5/8 inches deep. The bee is suspended on a ring and showcased on a gold filled flat cable chain with spring-ring closure.
Symbolism: The “Bee” is representative of the extended Whitney family, and the hive as symbolic of the Whitney Museum, a home for artists and art lovers;
the real beehive located on the rooftop of the Whitney Museum produces “Flora” honey, which “sweetens” the art world and our daily lives.
