The Royal Raven pendant is inspired by the Egyptian Goddess, Nekhbet, who was represented as a woman with the head of a bird (actually a vulture). She is a symbol of royalty and of protection, associated with the heavens. Our beautifully sculpted Skull is a sacred reminder of this and is an amulet for health, and both physical and psychic protection.Here she is Crowned for that extra regal touch. Living proof that you can take it with you! Simple, stunning, effective! It is hand crafted from Sterling Silver and is stamped on the back with the Mercurious name and logo and 925 to guarantee authenticity.
