Dragons are a worldwide phenomena intertwined with art, architecture, and fashion as much as part of human history as religion and the wheel. Something about serpents dazzles us to no end. Eve knew it and forever since it symbolized a certain decadence. Strength over sin has evolved over time in our bedside stories. To the East, Asian culture has very different beliefs about dragons. They are not monsters or beasts but gods. Universal wisdom overwhelms them, and prosperity follows them.
Heroes and knights are celebrities turned legend after slaying one fierce dragon. Overcoming them is a testament of power and faith as seen in the pop culture hit Game of Thrones. The show itself features three troublesome tyrants and at the helm is none other than Daenerys Targaryen, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons. The reason she remains popular among men and women alike is her
independence, pride, and allure. The Khaleesi is a prime example of everything we think a dragon to be.
She has encouraged a new generation of women to break their own chains and wear their cuffs with
confidence. For centuries it was thought that the maiden was in danger of the fiery peril, when now it seems likely that we represent the danger. Be a diamond amidst coal, stand a warrior among queens, be a dragon among snakes.
Every woman can show her fierce inner dragon with these pieces by Rebel Ideal.

"I picked up my beautiful pendant from the post office today & just adore it. Perfect length on me too as I have a small neck & I love garnets but am partial to the green ones & have a major love of dragons, hence the attraction to this beautiful creation."
