Bradamante Pendant


The stepped sides of this double sided pendant contain an etching of the Holy Child, and engraved Italian.

“Against all odds” or contro ogni aspettativa is a phrase that is closely associated with the knight heroine Bradamante. A character of Renaissance poetry she wields a magic lance, which she uses to save the man she loves - Ruggiero - from a wizard named Atlantes. A devout Christian, she refuses to marry Ruggiero unless he converts to her religion. Despite his agreeing, her parents still objected to the marriage, so she made an agreement with them that she would marry whoever could best her in combat. Ruggiero won, and they lived happily together until the end of their days, founding the noble House of Este together.

Color: Sterling Silver

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. Dimensions: 2cm wide (including baubles) 3cm long (including bail).

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.
