**Design and Materials:**
Crafted with precision and artistry, this pendant showcases the iconic Trinacria symbol in 14k two-tone solid gold.

Measuring approximately 18mm across, it strikes the perfect balance between boldness and intricacy.
The Trinacria, also known as the Triskelion, is an age-old symbol of Sicily, representing the island's triangular shape and three capes. It is a symbol steeped in history, tracing its roots back to the neolithic era and bearing resemblance to Archimedean spirals, paying homage to Sicily's renowned native, Archimedes.
The three ears of wheat symbolize Sicily's fertile land, blessed with a Mediterranean climate that nurtures growth year-round. Sicily's strategic location at the crossroads of ancient civilizations is acknowledged through these enduring symbols.
The Medusa head, borrowed from Greek mythology and passed down through Roman and Italian culture, serves as a protective amulet against malevolent forces. Its evolution from a grotesque figure to a more beautiful yet still potent guardian reflects the enduring spirit of Sicilian culture.
The Trinacria, historically adopted during the Sicilian Vespers in 1282, is now the official flag of Sicily. Its use during World War II, symbolizing the island's desire for independence, underscores its enduring importance. Sicily's quest for autonomy was realized with the help of Allied forces, making the Trinacria a symbol of resilience and freedom.
