“Honor to the brave bombers of the sky” is the Italian expression engraved on the back of this rare & ravishing jewel. Crafted in rich, patinated 18k yellow gold circa 1918, this medal was given to a member of the Italian Air Corps for bring a “flying ace” during World War 1. The medal was made by Caproni, who was an Italian airplane manufacturer noted for making bombers used during the war. Originally worn as a medal of honor, it was passed down in a family and worn as a piece of jewelry by the lucky women in the family who inherited it. It is now ready to pass into the lucky new hands of the WWI militaria collector, airplane history guru, or antique jewelry lover looking for a fabulous gold pendant. On the front is a goat, the symbol of Caproni, with the airplane manufacturing plant behind. On the reverse is the text of the award in Italian “honore al prodi bombardieri del cielo.” This is a fabulous piece of military history and an equally beautiful pendant on the neck- a wearable antique.
