I'm so excited to be linking up again with the gorgeous Naomi from Diva Mum for 'Trinkets on Tuesday'. Another excuse to dig into my treasure box and share with you another one of my beloved trinkets.
Todays special treasure is one I discovered on Etsy and fell in love with it at first sight.
It's my beautiful 'Love Conquers in Battle' brooch by a fabulous designer based in Greece, Demi, who names her exquisite range of adornments, Amoronia.

My beautiful brooch is worn as my Badge of Honor, close to my heart. It features an Ancient Greek quote from Classical writer Socrates 'Eρως άνίκατε μάχαν (pronounced: Eros anikaté mahhan) which translates as 'Love Unconquerable in Battle'. One of my own personal phlosophies. I'm a great believer in the Power of Love and have Faith that it can conquer all....always.
I love the antiqued brass patina and the scrolls of the frame. It looks very vintagey. At the bottom of the brooch dangles the loveliest creamy jade bead.
I love this brooch so much. I feel connected to my Grecian heritage when I wear it. It makes me happy and proud, and I wear it as a symbol that when times get a bit sad or stormy, Love will always rescue me.
