Oh, those amulets worn by barbarians with unsophisticated cultures. They are at best full of imaginations with little regard of reality. People in the past wore them during battles thinking they earn certain powers. Clearly, amulets belonged to societies untouched by the logic of civilization and culture of science. You wouldn’t see yourself wearing these childish trinkets in this modern age, would you? Well, maybe not. Wellendorff creates a stunning line of rope necklaces that borrowed the style and (imagine) perceived power of amulets, at least in a fun glamorous take. The Wellendorff amulets and rondels add splendour to a necklace and your neck, too. They have a magical air to them reflected by the signature cold enamel and 18k yellow gold. Wear them in a formal evening event and watch eyes glow with envy and whispers of admiration.
Wellendorff is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
