Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - Edward Elric Pendant
Any self-respecting fan of the series should get their hands on this, whether it is part of the set or on its own. Not just for having it, but from a cosplay standpoint as well. This particular pendant (there are others) is of Flemel's Cross and it is the symbol familiar to all FMA viewers that we see in the series. It is on Edward Elric's jacket and his brother, Alphonses armour suit.
The symbology is interesting and makes understanding the story of the two brothers easier as Nicholas Flemel was a Christian who studied Alchemy. The symbol incidentally of a serpent bound too a cross is a metaphor for taming something that is dangerous and being able to use it for good.
The pendant depicts a cross with directional arrows, a serpent woven around it, a crown and wings that give it a more mercurial nature (not surprising as Mercury was associated with Alchemy in many ways). What I found surprising was the pendant was heavy and made from quality metal. I have bought some jewellery from popular TV series in the past and it has not been as well made, or looks as good as this.
To be honest, this, for me looked better than I expected and the chain can carry the weight of the pendant, unlike some I have had. Even though I mention that the pendant has a certain weight to it, it doesn't mean that it is too heavy, or cumbersome in any way. It is perfect for cosplay wear, or if you want to wear it on a night out. It is however, something you will want to put in a presentation box for a while on your dressing table and stare at it for a while, so be warned.
