Details

Wax seal pendant depicting a sun and with French motto "I Never Retrograde". Antique wax seal jewelry charm with "Never Retreat" caption in solid bronze.

This listing is for one pendant.

The words framing this piece reads in French:
Je Ne Recule Jamais
(I Never Retrograde)

I never back down.
Never surrender, retreat or give up.
This wax seal necklace symbolizes one who, like the Sun, never retreats.

* this listing is for one charm
* no frills - shipped with no meaning card, no gift packaging
* the pendant is made of solid bronze
* the size is about 16-19mm across

The antique wax seal used in creating this charm is from 1810’s France, the last years of Napoleon Bonaparte as a ruler of France.

The charms are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC, by RQP Studio.
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 bronze by hand, and this gives each and every wax seal charm a unique look. The charms are hallmarked on the back with the RQP logo stamp. The wax seal charm you will receive is similar to the ones in the pictures.

Helpful hints:
* Some of the images (above) of the wax seal charms 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.

Shipped very quickly. Pendant is teeny but exquisite detail exactly like the photo. Glad I went with a slightly heavier chain than the original. Lovely piece, high quality.

I love this necklace so much. I've wanted it, honestly, for a couple of years now but didn't have the funds. Had some birthday money recently but was disheartened when I saw they no longer had the crest I wanted in silver. Messaged the shop and they were very friendly and 100% obliging. Was really impressed by how quickly Lena replied to my messages as Im from a different time zone. The necklace arrived a week or so ago and it's even lovelier than I thought it would be. Don't hesitate to make a custom order, they're super friendly and quick to sort it out. Thanks guys!

A memorial for my momma - been wanting this pendant forever, I even have it tattooed on my body. FANTASTIC AND ACCOMMODATING SELLER!! This was sold out so I asked to have it made again at some point - she replied right away and I think it was in the mail a couple of days later. Super cool packaging - you can see the pride they have in their product. This won't be my last purchase. You guys are wonderful. Thank you so much again!! :)
