Dante and the Lion Necklace
Dante and the Lion double-coin necklace is an emblem of courage on your Odyssey.
In the selva oscura - dark wood - Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast. This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship. A moment when unbearable darkness turns into the silhouette of hope; the double-coin represents the importance of being courageous.
It is cast in bronze, before being 24kt gold-plated, and hangs on a 18 inch gold-filled chain.
