This listing is for one wax seal necklace depicting a crest with Gryphon and Greyhound.

This necklace is made using an antique French wax seal that has two mottos written in two languages. The mottos are written with very tiny letters, too small to read with a naked eye.

The banner on the top reads in French:
Crains Le Tourbillon
(Fear The Vortex)

The banner on the bottom reads in Latin:
Fidelis Et Audax
(Faithful And Bold)

Strength, Courage and Boldness.
The heraldic symbol of a Gryphon has a rear body of a lion, an eagle's head,
with erect ears, and feathered breast, with forelegs of an eagle, including claws. The combination indicates intelligence and strength. The rampant greyhound symbolizes courage and vigilance. In heraldry a crown denotes authority. Fear the Vortex, where turbulence at the center of the energy is the strongest.

* this listing is for one charm and an 18 inch delicate sterling silver chain
* size of charm is about 23x21mm
* the words on the charm are too small to be read with the naked eye

If you want to swap out the chain and pay the difference for a sturdier, longer one, convo us.

The wax seal used in creating this pendant is from France and it dates back to the 1880’s.
The wax seal necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio.
This wax seal pendant is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and an 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the patina on the wax seal charm has been through a oxidization process to give it a antique, vintage look. The wax seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this makes each and every wax seal charm unique. The wax seal necklaces 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.
