Greek Octopus Sterling Silver Necklace 16" Rope Chain
A dominant motif in Minoan Ceramics, the Octopus was always admired by Ancient Greeks. Minoans were known to worship sea creatures and the octopus seems to have been their most favorite. Some scholars have conjectured that the ancient Cretans looked to octopus tentacles as inspiration for that characteristic Minoan architectural conceit, the labyrinth. This pendant inspired by a Minoan artifact is attached on its sides to a 16" Sterling Silver Rope Chain and makes a great fashion accessory.
The Neptune Collection features jewelry inspired by our Oceans and its wonderful creatures. It is named after King Neptune aka Poseidon in ancient Greece, the Ancient Greek God of the Sea.
