This unique pendant is a representation of the moon, and is based on the pendant of a Roman necklace dating to the third century AD. Here, our strong crescent shape terminates in small spheres, and the bail is beautifully ornamented with a linear arrangement of dew drops. This pendant may also be purchased along with one of our 20" Italian gold or silver chains, available here.
According to Greek mythology, Nyx was the goddess of night. One of the first creation gods, she mothered several other deities related to night or darkness, as well as the goddess or personification of day, Hemera. Nyx and Hemera were thus tightly and forever related, sharing powers over the light upon the earth, daily. Every night, Nyx would cover the sky with her veil, bringing night, and every morning, Hemera would scatter her mother's fog and bring daylight to the earth, again.
