Bohun Book of Hours Necklace
The beautiful color patterns you see in the large pendant of this necklace are inspired by a Book of Hours manuscript in the museum collections. Shades of pink, blue and purple are featured in the pattern, and the clear dome cover on the necklace amplifies the design from afar. This necklace is a wonderful choice for a meaningful gift.
Books of Hours were popular medieval Christian devotional works that included sections from the Bible, often from the gospels and Psalms, and included prayers to be read at various hours of the day. Elizabeth De Bohun, Countess of Northampton (1313-1356), a powerful and connected woman in England, commissioned this luxurious, illuminated, and expensive manuscript.
