Aphrodite Pendant in sterling silver. Made in Greece.
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus She is identified with the planet Venus.As with many ancient Greek deities, there is more than one story about her origins. According to Hesiod's Theogony she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus's genitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros). This is the reason why our pendant has the sea shell on the back of the pendant, that is to connote the sea connection associated with her birth.
