Defiance Bracelet Set: Spartan Defiance & The Knights Templar Bracelet
Defiance Bracelet Set includes:
Spartan Defiance Bracelet:
Defiantly staring into the abyss, knowing Death is calling, the true warrior rolls his eyes and dismissively mutters, “Get in line.” Spartan warriors were known for just this type of attitude that some might call arrogance. But to those trained in the ways of war, this was confidence inspired by a longstanding tradition of warriors that were born, bred and trained for battle.While Hollywood made them famous, Spartans were infamous throughout Greece and the world for their superior strategy and tactics on the battlefield. Spartan warrior training began at birth with the selection of only the strongest male infants. Then, at the age of seven, children were removed from their homes and entered the “agoge,” where they began rigorous, unforgiving training that molded them into skilled warriors. Through discipline, hardship and an undying loyalty to Sparta, they developed into a dominant fighting force.
Our Spartan Defiance Bracelet symbolizes the strength, wisdom and skill of the Spartan warrior. Encircling the bracelet are metal beads representative of the Spartan shields – often held side-by-side as the Spartans, standing shoulder to shoulder, formed the impenetrable phalanx. On the ends of the bracelet are spear tips like those found on the formidable dory that the Spartan heavy infantry carried. Wooden beds with a reddish hue represent the cloak that all Spartan soldiers were issued. Finally, centered on the bracelet, a stainless steel bead embossed with the phrase ΜΟΛΏΝ ΛΑΒΕ , the famously defiant response of King Leonidas replying to the demand of King Xerxes to have Leonidas’ army lay down their arms.Within you lives the heart of a warrior. Much like the Spartan, you are driven. Giving up is not an option. Never Retreat. Never Surrender. While faced with adversity and hardship, you rely on the fire that burns inside your soul. Others would take what’s yours, demanding you give in or give up. To them you say, “ΜΟΛΏΝ ΛΑΒΕ.”

The Knights Templar:
Charging into battle with swords drawn, the Knights Templar were part of a brotherhood that knew no fear. They stood together, bound by a fierce loyalty to one another. Retreating was not in their code. Surrender was not an option. When opposed, these highly trained warriors fearlessly road onto the battlefield, and Death most certainly followed. They fought for their beliefs and defended those of others. They made the choice to lay down their lives so that others may be free. Like the courageous Knights Templar, you live by a code. You live your life with honor and passion. For you, defeat is not an option. No Retreat. No Surrender. You make that choice. While the path you have chosen is never easy, you take pride in knowing that it’s right. Of this, you are certain. You shall have no fear. Like the links on the armor of the Knights Templar, this bracelet represents the commitment you have made to taking the path less travelled. You are bound by your own code. Engraved on this bracelet are the words – Never Retreat and Never Surrender. This is how you live your life for the fight is never over until the battle is won. Stand fast. Have no fear.
