Two Metres, Five Necklace

Gold vermeil

£1,300

"Any good work of art should have at least ten meanings.” A master of ambiguity, conceptual artist, Walter De Maria arranged simple geometrical objects in mathematical sequences, producing sublime repetitions. Referencing his infamous installation, The Broken Kilometer, Two Metres, Five pays tribute to multifaceted meanings and purpose. A charming, tubular pendant that doubles as storage for a small lighter or other personal effects, finished in an all-over ridged texture.

The Two Metres, Five pendant is thoughtfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver 925 or 18k gold vermeil. The pendant, measuring 28mm by 65mm and 17.5mm thick, is elegantly balanced upon a 70cm long and 1.8mm thick box chain.

All of the materials that we use in our jewellery are ethically and sustainably sourced using Fair Mined certified gold and predominantly recycled silver. 
The Two Metres, Five pendant is cast and assembled in Thailand by a community of artisans from our partner factory, Boma. The gold vermeil option is finished in the UK by our plating specialist, D&M. Read more about the story behind our pieces and their makers here.
