How many symbols do you expect to see in a single piece of Gothic jewelry? Take this number and double it because with this Sterling Silver Diamond Blade Skull Pendant, you’re about to see a full catalog of the much-respected Gothic images.
The very first thing that strikes the eyes is an intimidating skull emerging from the depths of the unknown. We didn’t spare sliver to turn shiny light silver into a rough and black texture to convey the feeling of darkness. The skull is enclosed in a shield, which, in turn, is adorned with swirly Gothic patterns. Whilst a skull represents danger, a shield is protection and defense. The corners of this design showcase sharp claw-like elements referring to a beast or evil you have to fight. The flat summit of the shield proudly wears a crown as a symbol of nobility, prudence, and power. A cross rising from the crown speaks of spirituality and powers that guide us on our way. Finally, the pendant’s bail carries an interesting design as well. Its shield shape and darkened appearance coordinates with that of the pendant. A shield is useless without a sword, so we added one to make the look – symbolically and meaningfully – complete.This pendant is a solid piece of sterling silver, masterfully crafted by our expert silversmiths. They cast and finished it by hand.
