Alis Volat Propriis (She Flies with Her Own Wings) Hidden Message Locket Necklace

Alis Volat Propriis (She Flies with Her Own Wings) Hidden Message Locket Necklace


This winged hidden message necklace is both empowering and inspirational in that it reminds the wearer that they can accomplish anything by believing in themselves and just going for it. 

This unique message locket necklace is handcrafted from sterling silver where its cover 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 cover, 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 hidden message locket necklace has an oxidized finish to show detail and to give it a vintage look and suspends from a decorative oxidized 18-inch sterling silver chain.

This message locket necklace is inspired by the inscriptions found in poesy rings (poetry rings) that were engraved with a brief poem or phrase of love, and exchanged as wedding bands or tokens of friendship and affection from the 5th through the 15th centuries.

Each hidden message necklace 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.
