The Nocturnus Pendant, meaning ‘The Night’ in Latin, is a piece inspired by demonic figures in medieval art. The devil and his minions were depicted as frightful creatures with sharp teeth, claws, and wings throughout the Middle Ages. The church used art as a political tool to control people through fear with its largely illiterate following. Fantastical depictions of demons were meant to instill fear by leveraging characteristics of animals that had negative associations. The Nocturnus Pendant takes back the beautiful imagery of creatures that fly by night. Each piece is debossed with the Dichotomie monogram for authenticity and hangs from a 20” sterling silver chain.
Labradorite is a highly mystical stone and is one of the most powerful protectors of the mineral kingdom. It safeguards against negativity and shields the aura while strengthening natural energies from within. It’s great for enhancing willpower and feelings of inner worth, thus relieving anxiety. Labradorite heightens intuition and psychic abilities, and for those who chose to explore alternative levels of consciousness, it provides safe exploration. It has a strong connection with the higher chakras and is extremely potent if used at the third eye chakra in meditation.
This jewelry piece uses a natural stone that has been prospected, cut, and polished by hand. That being said, please expect your stone to be unique and have organic qualities. This includes uneven coloration, minor surface pocking, striations, and/or inclusions during formation of the stone. These characteristics are naturally occurring and are still considered quality grade for jewelry. Only stones that meet Dichotomie’s standards will be used for your jewelry piece. If you receive your order and you have concerns about the appearance, we will be happy to work something out on a case by case basis.
