Avid Game of Thrones fans know this TV show has more layers than an onion, and the latest place we’re all looking for clues is in the costumes worn by our beloved characters.
Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton has always been adept at matching the character’s costumes to their journeys on the show, sometimes in such a seamless and discreet way that the average viewer would barely pick up on it, but recently she has been highlighting one particular item.
The item in question is the striking necklace worn on the series by Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner) which is comprised of a large silver circle pierced through by a needle and held up by a chain.
It’s not a new piece of jewellery worn by the character, as it’s been spotted on Sansa as early as season five, but it has been featured more prominently on her this season which led fans to question its origin.
This prompted Clapton to post an image of Sansa to her Instagram account, with the caption: “The moment Sansa grew up, no more a naive victim.”
“I use circles as they represent a positive emotional message of harmony and protection. The circle is often used to represent unity and commitment, they are associated with women’s strength,” she then wrote in response to a fan question on her account.
