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.
Design: The Dina Clarenza Pendant is a star-shaped golden medallion.
If you look up as you walk through the plaza in front of the Duomo de Messina as the clock strikes the hour, you will notice a flash of gold. The statues of two women are ringing the bell at the centre of the Duomo’s archway, a daily ritual that is the shadow of their original heroic act. The two women were standing guard outside their village when it was attacked, and ran to sound the alarm successfully rousing the people to defend themselves. Dina and Clarenza are a symbol of devotion, togetherness, and service.
Material: 18k Gold Plated, nickel and lead free. Comes with a chain.
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.
