Urraca Earrings with Jade


The Urraca are half-hoop earrings with a stud fastener, adorned with a jade gem, and looped golden chain.

Queen Urraca of Léon, Castille and Gallica was also known as la temeraria or the reckless. Through multiple marriages, she strategically found moments to take charge and has been described by historians as being both prudent and modest. She disdained her second husband, who was overly superstitious of crows and ravens, and treated her harshly and poorly. She had risen to the position of Queen through her own bloodline, and resented having to share power with a succession of brutish men. Nevertheless, she took many lovers (earning her her epithet), outlived many husbands, and, as contemporary writers wrote jealously of her, “took control, perhaps too much control of events”.

Color: 18K Gold Plated

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique which we believe gives them their beauty. Measurements: Length: 2.1cm (including chain) x 0.4cm

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.
