And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.
John Clare's words from the poem, "I Am!" evoke images of lying on downy, sweet grass with an endless, blue expanse above. Carefree as we hope only childhood can be.
This generously sized natural aquamarine's depths remind us to stop, reflect and breath. Oval in shape, the aquamarine weighs an impressive 7.75 carats. With even coloration in pale to medium blue hues, it possesses tremendous sparkle and joie de vivre.
It is set into a tailored mounting of 14k gold. Did we mention this is an exceptional value for such a fine and generously sized aquamarine?
*John Clare was an English Romantic poet known for expounding upon nature, love, and rural life. He lived from 1793 to 1864, and his poetry is remarkable all the more for his lack of formal education.
