The peace sign is one of the most recognizable symbols in the world. It was created by Gerald Holtom on February 21, 1958 at the request of Lord Bertrand Russell, head of the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
It was adopted in the United States for Civil Rights marches and gained notoriety at the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in Bethel, New York during the weekend of August 15, 1969. Produced in sterling, the peace sign has been given a dynamic and free-spirited transformation with an organic twist that reflects the cultural energy of a time which left its mark on history and Rock and Roll.
