Sumerian Queen Magnetic Bracelet
The Sergio Lub Magnetic Sumerian Queen Bracelet is made with jewelers' brass, German silver, and pure copper, plus two strong magnets in the magnetic version.

Her famous statues show her as one of the first women to wear bracelets.br>
In ancient times, Ishtar was a great mother goddess worshipped by those who believed that life and the universe had a female origin in contrast to those who believed in the theory of male origin. As goddess of Venus, delighting in bodily love, Ishtar was the protectress of prostitutes and the patroness of the alehouse. Her popularity was universal in the ancient Middle East, current day Iraq and Syria.
Ishtar is also a 1987 American action comedy film written and directed by Elaine May and produced by Warren Beatty, who co-starred with Dustin Hoffman. It is best known as one of Hollywoods biggest failures with tabloid stories of conflicts between the actors, the director, and the studio. Today, however, some critics including the N Y Times, now urge you to go see it.Made of jewelers' brass, German silver, and pure copper. Available in sizes small and medium.
