CORDELIA SEAHORSE PENDANT 18ct Gold Vermeil | Blue Tourmalines
The unique nature of the seahorse means that is has a fairly rich symbolic history across a variety of cultures, from Ancient Greece to China. Believed to be a symbol of strength and power, but also of patience and contentment the seahorse has long been considered a good luck talisman for sailors.
The name Cordelia is associated with ‘cord’, the Latin word for heart, and the Celtic ‘Creiryddlydd’, which means ‘daughter of the sea’. We chose it for this shy-looking seahorse for its ocean connection and also because the Wild & Fine studio is just a few miles from Stratford Upon Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. In Shakespeare’s play ‘King Lear’ Cordelia is the youngest of the King’s three daughters (and his favourite).
The Wild and Fine range of seahorses is created using antique specimens from a private natural history collection, which were returned in pristine condition once Jess had finished with them. Any gemstones used have been ethically sourced.
