Demi-Griffin Wax Seal Necklace
A wax seal necklace with a Griffin (or Gryphon as this beast is also known as).
The Griffin has a special meaning of strength, courage and boldness.
The Griffin is the most powerful and majestic of all creatures. With the rear body of a lion and the head, wings, forelegs and talons of an eagle, the combination makes the Griffon especially fierce. In heraldry, the legendary Griffin denotes strength, intelligence, courage and leadership.
Griffins not only mated for life, but also, if either partner died, would continue throughout the rest of its life alone, never to search for a new mate.
This particular wax seal necklace was made using an authentic antique wax seal from the Netherlands. The wax seal dates back to the mid 1850’s.
