Originating from a need to identify people in a time when few people could read, today coats of arms imply nobility, royalty, tradition and lineage. The art of heraldry is complex and fascinating and each symbol included on a coat of arms conveys important information about the person who bears the arms. These beautiful handwoven silk braces will broadcast your love of culture and heritage. The shades of silver and black represent peace, sincerity, and constancy, and the individual icons signify a host of other admirable qualities. For instance the rampant lions portray bravery, strength, ferocity and valor; the crowns convey authority and prestige; the fleur-de-lis communicate purity and light; the wings hint of swiftness and protection; and the flower connotes hope and joy. We can't think of a more dignified way to communicate so many positive attributes with a single fashion accessory!
These elegant braces are 1 3/8 inches wide with polished nickel hardware and black leather attachments and crosspatch. The elastic below the Y-back provides a bit of stretch for an accommodating fit. Each Limited Edition brace comes with a numbered collectors card and is available for a limited time only.
