This hand carved Aphrodite pendant from our celebrated silver goddess jewelry collection finds our Greek beauty in a wonderfully natural rendition featuring ancient fossilized ivory.
There is so much to love about our Aphrodite pendant featuring—who else—the ivory goddess of love and beauty. Our Aphrodite's perfect features are hand carved in fossilized mammoth tusk ivory, and she wears her hair loose and long in the traditional Greek style. She is alluring and irresistible—it's no wonder our word 'aphrodisiac' finds its origin in Aphrodite's name.
The hand worked sterling silver setting highlights a floral motif that frames Aphrodite's face. Flowers, also a symbol of beauty, are the perfect pairing for this portrait. As a contemporary carved ivory pendant, this necklace marries an old-world look with modern design elements, creating a piece that wears like a timeless classic.
Aphrodite's expertly carved face is made from fossilized mammoth tusk, which at over 15,000 years old predates even the myth of Aphrodite herself. Centuries spent buried in permafrost or underground have either retained the mammoth tusk's creamy tone or colored it a variety of soft earthen shades. We carve our Aphrodite pendant from the cream colored mammoth ivory shades to set off her luminous beauty. This wonderful ancient ivory takes us back in time to a bygone era when the great mammoths still roamed the earth.
