Inspired by the gothic horror stories of HP Lovecraft such as The Hound and The Nameless City, the Badali Jewelry artists Janelle Badali designed and created this locket-like Necronomicon necklace. The book pendant is hinged so that it can open and close. The Necronomicon is skillfully crafted in your choice of precious metals, carefully hand finished, and individually inspected for the highest quality by our staff. The pendant is available in sterling silver, yellow bronze, or dark bronze. Dark bronze is a surface treatment that will eventually wear away over time. How quickly a surface treatment will wear away is dependent on the daily wear and tear the item will be exposed to.
The Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire featured in the Cthulhu mythos. The book is said to have originally been written by Abdul Anzared, the "Mad Arab", in approximately 738 AD and to contain accounts of the Old Ones, their history and the means by which to summon them. The Necronomicon features hand carved designs containing ancient symbols to bind, contain, and capture the dark secrets held within the book. The patterns along the long sides of the book are abstract depictions of Cthulhu and Yog-Sothoth. The corner caps of the book are engraved with the Elder Sign, which is said to hold the Old Ones and their servants at bay. Open the book to find the infamous Necronomicon rhyming couplet engraved in Arabic, the original language of the book: That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.
The Necronomicon measures approximately 44.2 mm (1 3/4") tall, 27.6 mm (just over 1 1/16") wide when closed, 52 mm (2 1/16") wide when opened, and 6.9 mm (1/4") at the thickest point. The pendant weighs approximately 29.6 grams in sterling silver, approximately 25 grams in bronze. The pendant is stamped with our copyright hallmark. The silver pendant stamped with the metal content, STER (sterling), ensuring our jewelry is made of the finest metals.
Choose from a 24" long stainless steel rope chain or a 24" long black leather cord. A 20" long 1.2 mm sterling silver box chain is available for an additional $25.00.
