This piece measures 15.25" at its' longest length but is adjustable to be a shorter piece or double it for the layered look. It is a great piece for a man and picture this piece as a choker ladies; that's how versatile this particular piece is. The chain is sterling silver with a black coating that is sealed so it will remain black. The Dragon pendant measures 1.5" in length and 1" across. The Dragon's wings look like two black hatchets and the sterling silver tail is capped with an arrow head. These details make the pendant look Gothic or detailed. The appearance is in the eyes of the beholder.
This piece was created for the love of mystical and powerful creatures such as the Dragon. The meaning of the Dragon is very important and strong in symbolism.
Dragons are one of the most complex and universal symbols on earth. Their popularity in contemporary literature and films seems to assure their ongoing place in literature and in the imagination of mankind.
More than any other image, the dragon is associated with the Orient. A symbol of the emperor himself, the dragon was master of all of the elements of nature. The dragon can take many forms and can be victorious in any circumstance.
A dragon is particularly auspicious as a symbol of future growth and expansion. The dragon is most useful in connection with fame, reputation and career. An impressive representation of a dragon can be of tremendous positive benefit.
In many cultures dragons are viewed as representing the
primal forces in nature and the universe. They can alternately breathe fire,
poison or ice. These abilities demonstrate that they are both creators and
destroyers. Fire gives life (and sometimes death); ice and poison mete out
death. Early muskets were named “dragons” due to their fire-spitting ability.
Likewise, muskets can serve either to procure food and preserve life or to dole
out death in battle.
