Beautiful brass pendant reproducing the shapes of the famous "Coração de Viana" .This pendant is entirely handmade in the Cobres Cunha workshop in Barcelos in Northern Portugal. It comes with a cotton necklace.
- The authenticity of this pendant linked to the alloy used, the shape chosen and the conditions of its manufacture.
- A jewel close to ethnic jewelry, of very good quality and surprisingly modern.
The Heart of Viana (Coração de Viana) finds its origin in antiquity. It represented the centre of life, solidarity, fraternity, and love. The Coração de Viana later appeared in Portugal as an object of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Portuguese wore it on their breasts as a sacred symbol.
Très jolie ☺️
