"Friend to a Prince, and fellow to a beggar, if he be found worthy..."
In 1975, director John Huston made Brother Rudyard Kipling's short story, "The Man Who Would Be King" into a classic, old-fashioned adventure film. Sean Connery and Michael Caine are, respectively, Daniel Dravot and Peachy Carnahan, a pair of lovably roguish British soldiers who set out to make their fortunes in the Middle East. Through a lucky turn of events, the priests of remote Kafiristan make Dravot a king when they learn he is a Freemason by seeing the Masonic jewel around his neck.
This replica of the jewel in the movie has been created as close as possible to the original, and weighs about 14 grams, and is 1 3/8" Wide from tip to tip of the square.
1 5/16" tall from bottom of square to top of bail (ring at top). The
Thickness varies from 3/32" to 1/8". The reverse is smooth polished and has ample room for engraving. Each pendant is packed with a 20" chain. The pendant in the video capture image at the top right of this page is the original movie piece, so you may see how close this is to original.
