Inktober 2019 Day 17: Ornament

Today's Prompt:

A medal of honor granting a terrible and powerful title. A sacred chalice
used in a bloodletting ritual. A trinket scrawled with the key to unlocking
the secrets of a forgotten language. Ornaments, ceremonial or not, reflect
the values of their culture. What ornaments appear in your world?

Here are some recommended templates to get you started, but they are only suggestions, not requirements!

Musical trinkets and ornaments are the typical result of attempts to replicate the Tyrellium Chimes:

I may have deviated from the prompt too much since I focused more on the city itself rather than the cathedral I was supposed to talk about. I plan to go back and modify it when I have the time though. As for now, here's my article:
