Accuracy of Badali Dragon pins

Recommended Posts

What do people think of the Ashaman pins from Badali jewelry? Does anyone own one?

Also, what do people think of the enameled versions? I don't have the books with me any longer and so can't check but I want to ensure they are accurate before I ever buy one. I'd always envisioned them as essentially enameled little versions of the dragon on the Dragonbanner - but these look rather different. Thoughts? Is a pin that looks like the dragonbanner available somewhere else? 

I do quite like their Dedicated pins - and I am really quite irked that every flipping ring in Wheel of Time is gold since I could afford their silver jewelry but, what's the point of having them if they aren't accurate?

I saw these a long time ago in silver. RJ had a hand in green-lighting the design at least.  Personally I think the red enamel sets them off a little more over the plain gold-plated ones.  I've also seen then in silver but from another jeweler but can't remember which, or maybe this is the same but their copyright is 2013 so I doubt it.  I do remember they sold out fast.  These are a nice little memento for fans.

I actually bought and wear a silver AS ring. I always wear silver jewelry so it was a plus, but actually, for cosplay, I took my ring and spraypainted it gold. It... was okay for a photoshoot, but the spray didn't last long. (when they came out with the cheap fake gold ones, I bought two, for cosplay reasons).

 

I actually think the Asha'man pins look awesome as is. Definitely get the red enameled version. But, this is from someone who hasn't personally bought those.

Every design they released prior to Jordan's death was personally approved by him. Everything since then has been approved by his estate, which means Harriet. I've purchased several of their pieces over the years, both for my own use and as gifts, and have always been very pleased with the craftsmanship and quality. I tend to buy in person, not online, so I can't speak to the ordering experience. But all the Badali folks are super nice and very helpful.

    • The educational system in South Africa is the same as in many countries. I want to talk about what kind of educational system is in America. Kindergartens are not very popular in America. Parents prefer that their children study with their nannies or with them at home. Children go to primary school at 5 years. Children graduate from primary school at 11 or 12 years old. Children who are smart and who study for each class one year, finish school at 11 years old. Children who have difficulties with learning, and who repeat their studies in a certain class, finish school at 12 years old. Children go to secondary school at 11 or 12 years old and children finish high school at 14 or 15 years old. A high school has a duration of 3 years. For graduation from school, a student must write a graduation paper with which the college essay writing service www.paperial.com can help and a student must pass exams which belong to different fields: such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and so on. After a student finishes school, he or she can go to college where he or she will study for 2 years or may go to college or university in which he or she will study for 4 years. In order to enter a college in which students study for two years, or to enter a college or university in which students study for 4 years, a student must pass the entrance exams and have a card in which there are good grades received at school. After graduating from a college or university which obliges a student to study for 4 years - a student can enroll in a magistracy and study there for 2 years. In conclusion, a master can study 3–6 years in order to obtain a doctor’s degree.
    • You can’t touch the source without reaching through the taint. 
    • "if the number of qualifying candidates is too unwieldy for a single debate, the Democratic National Committee said it’ll hold primary debates on multiple nights if necessary, assigning candidates randomly to the two debates"   That opens up the possibility of a lot of mischief.      " 1 percent support in three national polls or polls of early primary states, or raise money from a minimum of 65,000 donors from 20 states, including at least 200 unique donors per state. "   What polls? Do candidate polls count? Who decides if a state poll is worthy of inclusion? Do polls which have more then a 4.5% magin of error count (many early polls are at or over this level although they are statistically unreliable)? How do you include candidates with one or two percentage support if the margin of error in even the best polls are above 2.5%?
