Iranian Faravahar Necklace, 925 Sterling Silver 

The minimialist Faravahar necklace is the best-known symbol from ancient Persia representing divine power and royal glory. It is most commonly represented as a winged sun disk with a seated bearded male figure in the center. There are various interpretations of what the Faravahar symbolizes, and there is no concrete universal consensus on its meaning. Most interpretations are recent in the academic community and there is still debate as to its meaning. In modern Zoroastrianism, many interpretations of the faravahar represent the Zoroastrianism god, Ahura Mazda, or signify concepts such as fravashi (ie. guardian angel) and Khvarenah (ie. divine grace), which are associated with the concept of a personal spirit of an individual, whether dead, living, or yet-unborn. It can be interpreted as a visual guide illustrating the good conduct development of human souls. The Pahlavi dynasty used this religious-cultural symbol to represent the Iranian nation. The Faravahar is one of Iran's most well-known and widely used pre-Islamic emblems, and it is frequently worn as a necklace. Despite its religious origins, it has evolved into a secular and cultural emblem for Iranians.
