Inspired from the pages of The Dresden Files © by Jim Butcher, the Badali Jewelry artists have created Harry Dresden's © Shield Bracelet. The bracelet features six shield shaped charms, each bears a Medieval symbol: a heraldic lion, a dragon, an ornate Fleur-de-lis, a Celtic cross, a phoenix, and a more simple Fleur-de-lis. Harry has multiple versions of his Shield Bracelet throughout The Dresden Files series. The bracelets change as he fine tunes and hones his magical skills. Some versions were destroyed through use. The design we have created is Harry's original and most iconic version of his Shield Bracelet. Harry's Shield Bracelet is an officially licensed Dresden Files replica through Jim Butcher.
The shield charms are skillfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver or white finished bronze and hung on a stainless steel bracelet. White finished 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. Each bracelet is carefully hand finished and individually inspected for the highest quality by the Badali Jewelry staff.
The Silver Shield Bracelet © is Harry Dresden's foremost source of defense. When in use, the bracelet forms a metaphysical barrier which appears as a pale blue dome of light. The barriers deflects kinetic attacks such as bullets and blows. Harry Dresden wears the shield bracelet on his left hand and is seldom seen without it.
Harry's Shield Bracelet is available in 7", 8" or 9" lengths. The shields, from left to right, measure as follows:
- Lion - approx. 26.6 mm (just over 1") long, 18.7 (11/16") at widest point and 1.6 mm (1/16") thick.
