The Banu Pendant is an ancient gold coin pendant, surrounded by five aquamarine gems.

It is named for the warrior heroine Banu Goshasp of Iranian mythology, who was such a powerful adversary she came close to slaying her father on the battlefield due to not recognising him beneath his armour. Luckily father and daughter recognised each other in time, but this was not the end of her fierce fight for independence. She was encouraged by her family to marry, but she wished to remain free, and so promised only to do so with the man who could best her in battle. Only the hero Giv came out victorious, and so they wed, and together bore a son: the hero Bijan.

Fit & Care:

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

 As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

 Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

 Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

 Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

 I hope my creations bring you luck. 

About Cleopatras Bling:

The founder and creator of the brand is Olivia Cummings.

" Olivia, born a wanderer. From childhood, surrounded by trinkets, crystals and her treasure chest. With an overwhelming sense of adventure – that something else is always waiting to be discovered.

Cleopatra’s Bling was born from an adoration of travel, the etherial, and the symbolic.  A fusion of eastern allure and western style. Dreamed up in Paris, Olivia moved to Turkey to learn the art of adornment in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. 

She carved wax, hammered metals and sourced stones while sipping on thick Turkish coffee. Today, Olivia is between Istanbul, Paris and Melbourne with a scarf in her hair, and a ring on every finger. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.  

Olivia wishes that her creations remind us all of our innate connectivity, our cosmic relevance and hopes that they accompany you throughout your discoveries. 
We wish you all a Bon Voyage."
