This gold pendant, also available in sterling silver, is in rounded cross shape and etched on both sides with stars, as well as an image of the Holy Mother, and her child.
It is named in tribute to one of the most effective female rulers of history, Mawia. Historians agree that she was, after Zenobia, the most powerful woman of late antique Arabia, who commanded large armies as well as the love of her people. Some historians believe her to have been a devout Christian, who lived her life on horseback in the desert sands.
Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead free. Dimensions: 1.7cm wide, 3.2cm long (including bail).
