Celebrating mothers, the cornerstone of any culture - ancient or modern!
This dazzling pendant features a beautiful globe at the front comprised of separate disks that glitter in the light. It is inspired by a pair of earrings found in the excavations of the ancient luxury villa at Oplontis in the Bay of Naples, that date to the first century AD. This pendant is also available as earrings on our website, here. It may also be purchased along with one of our 18" Italian gold or silver chains, available here.
"Livilla" is the diminutive form of the Roman name Livia. One Livilla was Claudia Livia Julia, who was named after her grandmother, Livia Drusilla, wife of Augustus. Called "Little Livia" by her family, this Livilla was also the sister of the eventual emperor Claudius, and aunt of the emperor Caligula. Highly ambitious, Livilla was also quite highly regarded, early on, and was even called a "sovereign beauty" by the historian Tacitus, in his Annals (4.3).
