Carcharius Necklace


alt text alt text

The shell that dangles in the centre of dark stones is alight with the power and brilliance of precious metal. This necklace is named for the Roman word for shark, the creatures who roam freely amongst the flora and fauna of the reef. Since ancient times sharks have symbolised cleverness, discernment and quick decision-making. Sharks are said to aid one in being attuned to emotions, and to open one up to the meanings of dreams and visions. Sharks are also protectors; in one case from the 16th Century, a group of Italian sailors whose boat was leaking, saw the hole plugged by the nose of a sawfish shark who swam with the boat all the way to the shore. It was considered to be a miracle, and a rostrum of the shark is kept in a sanctuary in Naples in its honour. Made from Afghani lapis lazuli.

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead free. Certified recycled sterling silver base. 

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
