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?

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

The clarity of tone of the Crystalline Chimes remains unparalleled, although efforts to replicate its manufacture produce musical treasures in their own rights.

Blade of Liberation

Hidden deep inside Devin's Retreat below Blackbourne, the Master of the Silent Blades keeps the Blade of Liberation, an ancient relic used by Douglas Devin during the fight for Archana's independence, nearly 200 years ago.

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:
