The Haloed Christ - The Ultimate Symbol of Faith for the Byzantine Empire
Please Note: This is a hand-crafted wax seal pendant made with the sealing device described. Each piece is unique, and you will receive the exact wax seal pendant in the photographs and description.
Daily life in the Byzantine Empire centered on faith - religious belief and practice had a preeminent place in art, politics, education, currency and the jewelry that was worn by both rich and poor. Images of Christ and Christ’s Cross were revered, and the sturdy bronze seal ring used to make this wax seal pendant bears the bold portrait of Jesus Christ with the classic halo around his head. Hand-cast by an ancient Byzantine artist, this ring was custom made for the wearer, and stands as an enduring symbol of faith to this day.
Your Jesus Christ - King of Kings Seal:
Metal: .999 Fine Silver
Gemstone: Lab Created Alexandrite Seal Stone
Sealing Device Date: Circa 1000 AD
Sealing Device Discovery: The Holy Land
Special Note: This seal ring is classic Byzantine, but was unearthed in the Holy Land. During the crusades, personal items like these were carried by citizens and soldiers alike. Once encrusted with the dirt of ages, Robert hand-conserved it for me and it renders a stunning image with every wax seal pendant I make.
Please Note: I create each piece of Sealed in Time jewelry one-at-a-time by hand. Slight variances are natural, and are part of the joy of a hand-crafted piece of jewelry! Your "Jesus Christ - King of Kings" seal will be created with the actual 1000 AD Bronze Byzantine Seal Ring!
