Jahangir Pendant with Green Onyx
The Jahangir Pendant, embossed with the image of a lion and a shining sun and surrounded by five green onyx stones, by Australian jewellery brand Cleopatra's Bling.
Founded by Olivia Cummings, Cleopatra's Bling is the result of a life long love of travels and trinkets. With her time split between Melbourne, Paris and Istanbul - Olivia treasure hunts in the Istanbul Grand Bazaar for pieces that she hand-carves and reworks into new designs, with a hint of nostalgia.
About Jahangir: The combined symbols of lion and sun have a rich history within Asian and Middle Eastern countries. When used on a coin it is closely associated with the Jahangir Rupee, which takes its name from the eponymous Emperor of the Mughal Dynasty - the “conqueror of the world”. In Iranian astrology, Jahangir was a Leo, and he felt closely tied to his Astrological sign’s associated with greatness and power.
Handcrafted and individually cast, each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Each stone is natural, untreated as well as traceable, meaning that each stone differs in tone and colour.
