Akey pendant is a beautiful symbol representing knowledge and success, freedom, and liberation.
Keys are the perfect gift for a milestone – a key to unlock the next chapter, an open door to a successful future.
For the ancient Greeks, keys were a symbol of wisdom. Other cultures hold keys as symbols of jurisdiction. The key icon represents opening doors of opportunities, freedom, possibilities... and, of course, the key to your heart!
Available in different styles and sizes, the DelBrenna Keys are radiant symbols of a bright future. A great addition to your DelBrenna chain collections.
WHY ITALY HOLDS THE KEY TO OUR HEARTS
Symbols of a great past, it is easy to associate keys with Italy.
The first lock and key device appeared more than six thousand years ago in ancient Assyria (now Iraq and Syria). Wooden pin locks and keys were commonly used in ancient Egypt.
But the Romans invented the first warded lock with brass keys.
And we love thinking about medieval times, when gates to walled cities were closed and locked with giant locks and iron keys, to protect the citizens from raids and invasions. You can still see these gates in our beloved hometown of Cortona, and some keys displayed in our archaeological museum.
Lock-up a luxurious-look with the help of a historic key pendant!

HOW TO STYLE YOUR KEY PENDANTS
When styling a key pendant, our main advice is simple: the bigger the key, the longer the chain!
Large keys such as our Grande Key or our Flower Key are perfect on long chains, Opera/C length (27-29 inches), or Rope/D length (34-36 inches).
We love wearing our larger keys over sweaters on a long chain during winter months so that the key hits between the sternum and navel.
Layering two or more keys is also a favorite look, especially smaller keys on short chains such as our Princess/A length (16-18 inches) and Matinee/B length (20-22 inches).

Add a polished touch to your look. The Y-shape that the pendants form when on a chain is elongating. It is especially helpful in Fall & Winter months when we bundle up in layers and higher necklines. Choose your favorite one in our "bright, white, shine" rhodium finish!
