Jeanine Payer Arianna necklace
With Sir Edmund Hillary’s passing yesterday, New Zealanders are going online to buy and sell memorabilia, with the country’s $5 note being the most popular item. However, we’ve heard of something more tasteful from San Francisco, Calif. that shows just how far Sir Edmund’s in?uence went: a Jeanine Payer necklace, dubbed Arianna, inscribed with his famous quotation, ‘It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.’
   The company informs us, ‘The Jeanine Payer jewelry line is comprised of hand-crafted and hand-engraved sentiments on sterling silver and 18k gold rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets.’
   Arianna features an 18 ct teardrop pendant with satin ?nishing, accented with a diamond, and retails online for US$575. Jeanine Payer’s website can be found at
