After seeing Kyle’s sketch of the Great One Divine™ symbol, I spent many sleepless nights planning how to make a pendant worthy of the design. As I was envisioning a three dimensional cut-out symbol, part of the design query was what size to make the first Great One Divine™ pendant.
One night while we were closing the showroom, my husband, Jim, arrived to help. I had just pulled the cash drawer and it occurred to me the different coins would be excellent size samples. Jim and Kyle were about the same height and size so I pulled three coins out of the register; a dime, a nickel, and a quarter, and held them up to Jim to see which size looked best.
The quarter seemed a great proportion for the guys and it occurred to me that using coins as a size descriptor was a simple, logical way to accurately describe the size of Great One Divine™ pendants. Traditional size descriptors such as small, medium, and large were meaningless without context. Describing the size as “quarter size” was a simple, universal phrase that accurately illustrated the size.
We made the very first Great One Divine™ pendant the size of a quarter, hand cut from 14k yellow gold. Later in 2005, a mold was made to produce the quarter-size Great One Divine™ pendants in white and yellow gold.
In 2007, two years after the first quarter-size (large) pendants were made, we introduced a nickel-size (medium) pendant. We then followed with the dime-size (small) in 2008. Finally, in 2010 we introduced our fourth and smallest size, the petite.
While the “size of it all” has changed over the years, we know one thing for sure…whichever Great One Divine™ pendant you choose, we are certain it will be the perfect size.
