She Who Has Courage Pendant Gold Vermeil


The Hindu goddess Durga, protective mother of the universe and creator of all life, is celebrated in this elegant aged coin pendant.

Invincible, as her Sanskrit name suggests, she is depicted riding a lion, her arms ready for battle in the fight against darkness.

Engraved with the message “Today, I choose courage”, this pendant serves as your armour, reminding us of the divine female warrior within us all.


Chain length: 50cm with adjustment from 45cm

Coin: 16 x 30mm (including top of bail)

Weight: 7.5g

Material: 22ct gold vermeil (a thick 2.5 micron coating of 22ct gold electroplated onto a base of sterling silver*)

*Pendant is recycled sterling silver, chain is not recycled.

Social impact

This piece has been carefully crafted by a small team of marginalised artisans displaced from West Bengal, who have found sustainable livelihoods through their skill in making beautiful pieces like these.

They are proudly certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation.

Each piece comes packaged in a soft organic pouch, which has been lovingly made by some of Jaipur’s most vulnerable women, who are bettering their lives through the income from the block printing, tassel making and stitching of these very pouches. No two are the same, each one beautiful in its imperfections.

Planet friendly packaging

Packaging is mindfully thought through to be kind to the planet.

In addition to our organic cotton jewellery pouches, your jewellery will come pacakged with tree-free recycled cotton paper care tags, soy based, compostable tissue paper and a recyclable eco postal box made from certified sustainable sources. Even our embossed stickers are wood-free and completely biodegradable.

To help keep your jewellery looking lovely, each piece comes with a soft branded jewellery cloth.

One pouch per order (unless ordering items at risk of tangling such as pendants, which will have their own pouch). If you would like more than one pouch (for gifting purposes) please include in the note at checkout or email

I love all the pieces that Loft & Daughter do and this one didn't disappoint. I've layered it with lots of other L&D necklaces and it looks gorgeous. People always ask where they're from or tell me how lovely they look. I'm very happy.

My experience has been truly lovely

My experience has been truly lovely. From the moment I reached out on Instagram with a question, Katie responded quickly and with heart. I placed my order and it arrived timely and in super cute packaging, always adds that extra magic when you open up your gift. I only take my necklace off to swim and shower, but apart from that I always wear it. It will be my staple necklace for the next couple of years. Each time I put it back on, I feel special. Sounds silly but it’s the little things right. I highly recommend treating yourself :) Love, Natalie

Such a beautiful pendant with a gorgeous meaning behind it. I always get comments when I wear it. Perfect to wear alone or as part of a layer. Received quickly, well packaged and of a really high quality. I will buy again from the shop
