Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time’s Jennifer Morrison Explains the Meaning Behind Emma’s Necklace (PHOTOS)

Emma Swan is a mysterious gal, so most of the time we don’t question what she does on Once Upon a Time for fear of just getting ourselves confused. However, there are a few things that are easier to untangle, including her choice of accessories.

We know how Emma got her swan pendant — its origin was revealed in Season 2, Episode 6: “Tallahassee,” in which Neal sends her money and the keychain from their gas station robbery to her in jail — but we didn’t know the nitty gritty about it until this weekend.


During a Twitter Q&A, star Jennifer Morrison revealed that she picked out the necklace herself, explaining, “I chose that necklace with that in mind knowing that Emma is the connection between fairy tale and reality.”

With some digging, we discovered that it is a Pyrrha Swan Talisman, which can be purchased as a necklace or a keychain at for $166. If the above intel didn’t make you want to buy it, her further explanation may intrigue you more. “In ancient celtic art, swans are pictured with rings around their neck to represent the connection between divinity and humanity,” she continued. Plus, it’s a swan, which fits with her last name.

Would you buy Emma’s swan necklace? Are you surprised by its meaning? Sound off below!
