Handcrafted from an antique wax seal from the early 1800’s England, this talisman features a crane on top of tortoise with the sun in sky and a banner with the Latin phrase “Tutum Te Robere Reddam” which translates to “I will give you safety through strength."
A crane holding a stone in its claw is a well-known symbol in heraldry and is known as a crane in its vigilance. At night cranes take turns keeping watch for enemies. A tortoise is the symbol for longevity and is also symbolic of slow, but sure progress.
The fine silver talisman is just under 1/2” round and hangs on a 18" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
Each piece of jewelry from The Silver Acorn comes packaged in a tasteful gift box with a meaning card ready for gift-giving.
