RABBIT HEART LOCKET WITH SERPENTINE
Cast from the heart of a rabbit, this large hinge free locket holds a stunning faceted serpentine stone at it’s centre.
Mythologically speaking, this stone is said to have unusual healing properties, and was thought to heal snake bites and protect against snakes. As the rabbit this heart was cast from was bred and killed as a feeder rabbit (to be fed to snakes) we thought this addition to be a rather poignant one. Rumour also has it that a chapter of the Egyptian Book of the Dead is carved from a tablet of Serpentine, which we think is rather appropriate as well.
Hand finished and soldered together in our East London Studio, we’ve added articulation to this beautiful piece, so that the stone moves as your wearing it.
Hanging from a long chain, this piece is the perfect accessory for both men and women.
As with all our sterling silver jewellery, this piece is hand punched with full UK hallmarks.
This piece comes in sterling silver or sterling silver plated in black gold, with a sterling silver chain.
Please note that while we spare no expense in regards to plated items, the plating will eventually wear off. In the case of black gold (Ruthenium), our platers are required to first plate in yellow gold before they plate in the black. This means that as your jewellery wears down, you’ll find it will look yellow before it goes silver. We like that! But if you’re uncertain, please feel free to get in touch and we can arrange to make your order in solid gold should you desire (not inc black unfortunately!). Added expenses will apply.
PLEASE NOTE: There can be a delay of up to 2 weeks in sending off your necklace due to the fact that each one is made and plated individually to order.
