The Little Mermaid
By Hans Christian Anderson
A fairytale of love. After saving a prince from drowning, a mermaid princess embraces a life of extreme self-sacrifice to win the prince’s love and gain an immortal soul.
For one hundred years, a bronze statue of the Little Mermaid has graced Copenhagen Harbor in Denmark. She sits atop a granite boulder immortalizing Anderson’s fairytale. This is our fairytale of love, pearl and diamond necklace with a stylized mermaid of diamonds seated atop a large pearl.
Shown above is Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid, sculpted in bronze, poised on a granite rock at the harbor in Copenhagen, Denmark. Our little mermaid is an artistic swirl of diamonds sitting on a very large pearl and is a symbol of true love in a haunting and inexpressively moving tale of love. Anderson’s story is one of the World’s most enduring works of fantasy for children.

When you go to Denmark be sure to stop in Copenhagen and take the tour that visits the Little Mermaid statue. It’s the most popular tourist spot in all of Denmark. Hans Christian Anderson wrote the story in 1837. The statue was started in 1909.
What is the Story of the Mermaid in Copenhagen?
The sculpture was inspired by ballerina Ellen Price, who in 1909 danced the lead role in the ballet The Little Mermaid at the Royal Theatre. However, Ellen Price would not model in the nude for sculptor Edvard Eriksen. Thus Eriksen’s wife, Eline Eriksen, posed for the sculpture of the Little Mermaid.
Why Do We Love This Necklace?
This necklace is a delight. Instead of bronze, the stylized mermaid is 14K white gold. The diamonds flow in a dream-like s-curve. The tail sweeps across the pearl. The pearl is pure white and is surprisingly big. Worn on an 18-inch 14K white gold chain, the Little Mermaid lands 2 inches from your heart. This is a very elegant piece of jewelry.
