CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my workshop.
This sterling silver pendant adopts a teardrop shape made of wire. In the upper part of this drop pierced, I welded a circle with a pearl.
This form is a reference to the moon, whose cult could be related to the Queen of Sheba as suggested by the Mahram Bilqis temple discovered in Yemen.
The lower part of the drop is decorated with a tube and silver beads. It supports two sterling silver wire decorated in the same way, highlighting two beads of lapis lazuli.
The simplicity and elegance of this pendant made me think of the Queen of Sheba (who ruled the kingdom of Sheba in the time of King Solomon), known for her beauty and intelligence. I can easily imagine this beautiful queen, wearing jewelry made from this semi-precious stone. According to legend, she was born a djinn (Umeira) and al-Bou-Himiari Scharh king of Sheba. She would have had the beauty of a houri, a creature of paradise.
This pendant is named Bilqis would be the Arabic name of the Queen. We also find the term balqis in the Quran and hadith.
It is 6 cm long.
