Lunar Goddess Pendant with Gemstone Pearl in Sterling Silver
Based on the primitive goddess figurines from Europe, this is a handmade .925 sterling silver goddess pendant with a gemstone pearl moon. She is 3.5cm long plus the bail, and holds a 6mm gemstone pearl in her hand. I have a selection of gemstones on hand, but if you are looking for a specific stone please don't hesitate to ask.
There are many versions of this goddess pendant found, but I made mine with a twist; a gemstone pearl in her hands to represent the moon. I made this design a long while back. As with the rest of my jewellery, I make her with a variety of stones, so check the list of available stones.
The moon goddess is an important deity in many cultures around the world where they form a central role in mythology. The moon is associated with the divine feminine as in many tribal societies the feminine cycles were linked to the phases of the moon. The moon was important in ancient calendars, helping people to measure time and to determine when the best time was for planting and harvesting crops. This fertility aspect of the lunar Goddess is reflected in large numbers of the goddess' found in ancient cultures around the world.
