Wax seal necklace depicting a tiny pelican vulning and with Latin motto "Life In The Blood". Antique wax seal charm jewelry in silver.

The words framing this piece reads in Latin:
In Sanguine Vita
(Life In The Blood)

The life of every creature is in its blood. A pelican in her piety represents unconditional love, sacrifice and devotion.

"For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life." (Leviticus 17:11)
The image of the pelican "in her piety" vulning herself (in the act of wounding her breast in order to nourish her young with her blood) is a symbol for Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death and resurrection.

Out of a ducal coronet, a pelican head and neck, vulning herself.

The antique seal impression used in making this necklace dates back to the 1880's, it originates from Edinburgh, Scotland.

The wax seal charm necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio.

This charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and a 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the charm has been through a oxidization process to give it an antique, vintage patina. The antique seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this makes each and every wax seal charm unique. The wax seal charms are hallmarked on the reverse with the RQP logo stamp and a silver content stamp (.999) to show that the silver content is 99.9% pure silver. The wax seal necklace you will receive is similar to the ones in the pictures.

Helpful hints:
* Some of the images (above) of the wax seal necklaces have been photographed close-up. If you have a hard time imagining the size of the charms, then it can be helpful to physically draw the dimensions of the wax seal charm on a piece of paper.
*You can type in the words "mm to in" into Google's search box, that will give you a quick converter if you prefer the dimensions measured in inches.
