Round Black Onyx Brooch with Circular Stainless Steel Vortex



Express your discerning taste for jewellery with this Round Black Onyx Brooch with Circular Stainless Steel Vortex! It brings back the history of more than 2,000 years old through the work of skilled craftsmen in South Africa. From generation to generation the art of jewellery making has been passed right from its very origins. This ethnic brooch symbolizes the sun eaten by a serpent or consumed by a vortex. It may have represented a reminder of the all powerful gods (in a form of a serpent) that always overlook your deeds that may even take away the sun as a punishment for sins. By looking at this brooch you are reminded to act out of your good will and it will bring joy and happiness to your life. This brooch features a Black Onyx stone in the middle of the solid stainless steel circular base. The "vortex" wire is attached to the base at the bottom of the brooch. The brooch measures about 6cm by 4.5cm, diameter of the top circle is 4cm, diameter of bottom "vortex" circle is 3cm and stone is 1.5cm in diameter. The brooch secures with a flag pin and revolver fastening. Due to the handmade nature of this piece, slight variations in shape and small details are to be expected. We recommend that you take a good care of this jewellery polishing it with a soft cloth and it should last for a very long time.
