Ravens represent the largest species of crows and are seen throughout the world in their various guises. Ravens can be very long-lived, they usually travel in mated pairs and although relationships between ravens are often quarrelsome, they demonstrate considerable devotion to their families.

The ravens’ habitat of rugged cliffs and wild landscapes has seen them promoted as a powerful symbol of mythology and folklore. There are several references to ravens in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Ravens feature heavily in Norse, Celtic and Indigenous American mythology. They are an aspect of Mahakala in Bhutanese mythology and are also mentioned in the Quran.
In my own home town of London a legend developed that the Tower of London will fall down if the ravens kept there ever fly away.

This raven pendant is made from solid sterling silver and solid 9ct gold. The silver has been oxidised to represent the raven’s black feathers and features a discreet hallmark to prove it is silver.
In the centre of the pendant is a natural 6x4mm natural, red, tear-drop shaped ruby that has been set into a solid gold mount. The raven's eyes and the ring it hangs from are also solid gold.
The raven pendant has a wingspan of one and a half inches, that’s a little under 4cm, and is supplied in its own gift box.

This piece of jewellery is supplied on a sturdy 20 inch silver chain that has also been oxidised to match the raven.

Shipping from United Kingdom

All orders are insured against loss or damage while in transit, I send orders using tracked & signed shipping whenever possible.

Estimated delivery dates are simply a guide (and can be a little bit optimistic). I cannot guarantee delivery times myself, but shipping to the US or mainland Europe typically only takes between five and ten working days.
Delivery times to other countries (including Canada, Mexico and some developing countries) can vary dramatically. Shipping usually takes a little longer around the holiday seasons.

Unless asked to do otherwise, I will ship to the addresses provided with your Etsy order, so please make sure your Etsy account details are up to date.

Although in many countries, including the United States and EU, you will not be asked to pay import tax on the majority of my designs, you may wish to familiarise yourself with your own country’s policies on importing goods before ordering, as I'm afraid I can't be held responsible for any import duty, or orders delayed by customs or security checks.
Neither can I assume an order has been lost in transit until it has been missing for at least thirty days.

This Raven is absolutely stunning... really a smashing piece, painstakingly and beautifully (hand!) carved. Take it from me; wax carving is not easy- Adrian sure is talented. The faceted Ruby catches the light far better than in my picture and the gold sections bring a real pop of colour; stand out beautifully. Adrian has been a joy to deal with... I'd invite those considering purchase to read through a few other reviews; everyone is ecstatic with the quality of his work, that's no coincidence. I adore my little Raven, I can't wait to start wearing him... I can't recommend this seller/ shop highly enough! I'm sure I'll recieve lots of compliments thanks to my gorgeous new winged edition, and I'll send any and all interested parties your way Adrian. Thank you so much again! I'm a happy bunny! PS. Purchased purposely without chain
