No time spent on anything is wasted if the experience adds to our wisdom—or so believed Auguste Rodin. As a sculptor, Rodin was intimate with the stew of misgivings which accompany all artistic endeavors. Rejected thrice from the École des Beaux-Arts, Rodin persisted in the act of creation with no guarantee of profit or approbation. And as a result of his perseverance, his skill, and his willingness to make mistakes and begin again a bit wiser, this French sculptor’s work can be found in museums and exhibitions throughout the world.
Crafted while Rodin was alive, this handsome French Lantern Watch Key is a testament to time and the way we choose to use it. Fashioned from 18K gold and platinum and enhanced with diamond and rubies, this unique pendant celebrates the moments we are granted in life—not just the literal minutes and hours, but the all the mundane and magnificent which fills our days.
