Brand: Cleopatra's Bling
Designer, Olivia was born a wanderer. From childhood, surrounded by trinkets, crystals and her treasure chest. Cleopatra’s Bling was born from an adoration of travel, the etherial, and the symbolic. A fusion of eastern allure and western style. Dreamed up in Paris, she moved to Turkey to learn the art of adornment in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Olivia now resides between Istanbul, Paris and Melbourne. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.
The name Argo derives from the ship on which the Argonauts sailed to their quest for the Golden Fleece. Led by Jason, they overcame a variety of great obstacles, including sea sirens that wished to tempt them to their deaths, giants, pugilistic kings, rocks larger than their boat, and mighty storms. Their vessel and its crew is testament to the power of courage in the face of adversity, and fidelity to one’s loved ones - no matter how far he travels, he will always come home. The story is not only a myth, but is rooted in a historical voyage of ancient Greek men to the kingdom of Colchis, where they sought to learn about the local people’s gold-mining techniques. The pendant is inscribed with the words of faithfulness and love: for my lover, pour mon amoureux.

Care: As Olivia and her team hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make the designs one-of-a-kind.
Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery. Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality.
