Guardianship Wax Seal Crest Necklace - I Will Protect The Ones I Love

I particularly love this crest, it was salvaged from an old antiquarian document that was tattered and old, and pictures a pelican in her piety, wings outstretched protecting her young while feeding them. Three keys are pictured on the shield below with the Latin motto reading "pandeli celestes partas", meaning I WILL PROTECT THESE HEAVENLY GIFTS.

The female pelican was believed to wound her breast with her long, curved bill, drawing blood to feed her young. For this noble act, the bird became a symbol of piety, self-sacrifice, and virtue and symbolizes the duties of a parent or parental love. The keys are symbolic of guardianship and dominion.

A gift for my sweet husband and he absolutely loves it! He wears it every day and plans to pass it to our son when he is older. The craftsmanship is outstanding. It's so unique and beautiful with a wonderful little story behind it.

This seal has a super special meaning for me and it was beautifully made. I can't wait to layer it with other necklaces. Beautiful packaging as well - perfect gift for a friend (although I'm definitely keeping this one for me).

Very pretty necklace. I was pretty impressed with the way it was shipped, too. The box and wax seal were a nice touch.
