The Sun and Stars Collection is inspired by The Game of Thrones.  Featuring jewelry from each of the noble houses, each piece encompasses a relic from the royal family it represents. Whether subtle like the black dragon claw necklace, for Dany and House Targaryean, or more literal like the gilded lion of House Lannister, each piece works as part of the collection and individually as a minimal statement piece.  Each necklace comes with a choice of either a 14kt gold filled or sterling silver chain.
