Juno is the mother goddess of Roman mythology, and Juno Regina is Juno as queen of the Gods. The echoing diamond shapes within each motif inspired the elongated diamond shape of the stole. The pointed ends of this piece are organic and simple to work, while still creating an interesting line in the finished product.
