Alis Volat Propriis (She Flies with Her Own Wings) Latin Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace

Alis Volat Propriis (She Flies with Her Own Wings) Latin Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace


This empowering and inspirational hidden message necklace promotes girl power in a very feminine way yet reminds the wearer that they can accomplish anything by believing in themselves and just going for it. 

This unique secret message winged locket is inspired by the popular poesy ring inscriptions of poesy or "poetry" rings that were exchanged as wedding bands or tokens of friendship and affection from the 5th through the 15th centuries.

Hand-wrought from sterling silver, this inspirational secret message locket is set with a glowing Swiss blue topaz gemstone set between two detailed feathered wings. Blue topaz  promotes strength and protection, two qualities that are good to have when you go it alone.

Upon opening the locket, you reveal the hidden message that reads "alis volat propriis," a Latin phrase whose official English meaning is "she flies with her own wings."  

This secret message locket comes with an oxidized finish to show detail and to give it a vintage look and suspends from a decorative oxidized 18-inch sterling silver chain.

Each locket comes with a small card enclosed in its jewel box that provides the translation of the hidden poesy message.

It would make a great gift for a graduate, or for any woman who needs a little encouragement to believe in herself and go after her dreams.
