A dark Onyx, tragic and uncompromising, embellish this handmade sterling silver pendant finely hand-carved in a Celtic style.
Once upon a time, the Greek poets sing, the goddess Venus was sleeping by the shores of the Indus River. Cupid, mischievous to his angelic feathers, wanted to surprise his mistress with a manicure. He aimed one of his enchanted arrows to her hands and took a shot. Her nails fell and sank into the waters of the sacred river. There, at the bottom, the pairings of nails grew roots until men fished them out as onyx stones.
Being the bearer of harmony in relationships and the provider of authority, courage, and confidence, the gemstone in facilitating human interaction and mutual understanding. Black onyx stones breathe both elegance and mystery into an attire.
