The necklace features a mermaid called Coralia which is taken from the 19th century ballet and has a similar story to that of The Little Mermaid
The doomed in his drifting shallop,     Is tranced with the sad sweet tone,     He sees not the yawing breakers,     He sees but the maid alone: The pitiless billwos engulf him!-     So perish sailor and bark;     And this, with her baleful singing,     Is the Lorelei's gruesome work.           Mark Twain (1880)
...Sabrina fair      Listen where thou art sitting     Under the glassie, cool, translucent wave,     In twisted braids of Lillies knitting The loose train of thy amber-dropping hair,     Listen for dear honour's sake,     Goddess of the silver lake,     Listen and save.               John Milton
