Separated in life in eternity united. Disgiunta Bella vita in eternitá unitá

This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of an Ouroboros (snake swallowing its tail) and twin hearts.
The text around it is in Italian and states Disgiunta Bella vita in eternitá unitá. This translated to 'Separated in life in eternity united'.

Rich with historical meaning, the ouroboros symbolizes rebirth, immortality, eternity, protection, self-reliance, unity, and nature’s cycles.

There are two identical hearts inside the ouroboros symbolising the two hearts that are separated in life but that are together in eternity.

This seal would have been used to comfort a bereaved friend and it is still a meaning that resonated today.

The pendant measures 20mm x 24mm including the bail ring.

During the checkout process you can choose if you want this pendant on its own or with a chain in the length that suits you best.

Wax Seal Jewelry......

Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations.

Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.
