Cleopatra's Bling - Aphrodite Bianca Necklace
As the Goddess of Love Aphrodite has a multitude of beautiful symbols, one of the most important being the scallop shell, in which she was most-famously depicted by Botticelli. In the painting she is surrounded by Zephyr and Aura who blow a gentle breeze upon her, while the Goddess of Spring stands to one side, ready to clothe her. Aphrodite stands ready to bestow a love reciprocated on all who are devoted to her.
Here the shell is suspended between glowing pearls.
