Also known as the Horned God and Lord of the Forest, Cernunnos is a Celtic deity of untamed nature and fertility. As a counterpart to the Goddess, he embodies masculine energies. He is the Lord of the Hunt, and is often depicted crowned with a stag's antlers.
Our Cernunnos Pendant is cast from bronze. It measures 1 1/4" tall, and comes on a 33" black cord which can be tied at whatever length you need.
Is this pendant meant to be worn by men or women? Like most of our jewelry, this design is unisex. If you love it, you should wear it! That said, the Bronze Cernunnos Pendant does have a decidedly masculine vibe that is likely to appeal to male witches. And let's face it, we all know how hard it can be for the guys to find high-quality, affordable jewelry in pagan and wiccan designs.
I am sensitive to some metals. Is bronze going to irritate my skin? Generally speaking, metal sensitivities are only an issue with jewelry that is worn for prolonged periods right next to the skin. This would include rings and earrings. Typically, pendants have a much lower chance of causing problems.
That being said, bronze is an alloy that contains a mix of metals, primarily copper (88%) and tin (12%), with traces of aluminum, zinc, nickel, silicon, arsenic, and/or phosphorus. This mixture creates a beautiful alloy that is more durable than copper alone, but if you know you are sensitive to any of the components, you might want to stick to our sterling silver jewelry.
