Saint George and the Dragon Medieval Chain of Office.
The legend of Saint George and the Dragon tells of Saint George (died in 303) taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices. The story goes that the dragon originally extorted tribute from villagers. When they ran out of livestock and trinkets for the dragon, they started giving up a human tribute once a year. This was acceptable to the villagers until a princess was chosen as the next offering. The saint thereupon rescues the princess chosen as the next offering.
The legend reached Western Christian tradition in the 12th century, via the crusades. At first limited to the courtly setting of Chivalric romance, the legend was popularised in the 13th century and became a favourite literary and pictorial subject in the Late Middle Ages.
This is the golden version of this chain, I also make a silver version. I have made this chain with gold plated medieval style connectors and a central pendant featuring Saint George slaying the dragon. The square connectors are each inset with a clear crystal. It has a toggle clasp to the back and measures approximately 95cm long.
