Like Elizabeth Bennet, Marianne Dashwood has a lively and engaging personality, and also like Elizabeth Bennet, this can lead her to say and do things she later regrets. Her determination to live vibrantly and follow the passions of her heart lead her to Willoughby, but these ideals also leave her open to face consequences of poor judgment. Like all Jane Austen's heroines, Miss Marianne has the ability to reflect on her actions and modify her behavior; in doing so, she finds happiness of a mellower sort with Colonel Brandon. The pendant reflects Miss Marianne's nature, from the passionate garnet to the age-old womanly wisdom of the moonstone, emcompassed in a graceful design. I found this long length of sterling silver chain tucked away in inventory, and I like how it adds delicate lace-like feel to the necklace. The chain was purchased before silver prices skyrocketed, and I'm able to pass along those savings in this necklace.

Cost: $52.00 USD
