Agate intaglio fleur de lis lapel - perfection
Agate intaglio fleur de lis mixed metal lapel. Made in Idar Oberstein, Germany where carving stone has been going on for over 500 years.
The fleur-de-lis has been around for centuries, one of the earliest surviving examples is on a gold helmet from the Scythians, a European nomadic people from the 7th to 3rd centuries BC. As a heraldic symbol, it has been interpreted as an element that is religious and political as well as symbolic. But there is much debate on whether the fleur de lis is a symbol or an ornament. So you choose what this intaglio means for you. All that aside, it is an elegant addition to your accessories collection.
