Aphrodite Pendant & Necklace - Gold-Plated Silver - Large
The Greek goddess Aphrodite has captivated hearts for centuries, representing love, beauty, pleasure, and fertility. The Romans revered her as their goddess Venus. Some believe that her worship was introduced to Greece from the Middle East, where she was known as Ishtar or Astarte.
Greek mythology recounts that Aphrodite was born in Cyprus as the daughter of Zeus and Dione. She emerged from the sea's foam on the shore of Paphos, a picturesque location now known as Petra tou Romiou or Rock of the Greek.
There are many interpretations of Aphrodite, including the Celestial Aphrodite, the goddess of ideal and pure love, Aphrodite Genetrix or Nymphia, who favored and protected marriage, Aphrodite pandemus/porne, goddess of lust, patroness of prostitutes, and Aphrodite Pelagia, a marine deity. She is also often depicted as a warrior.
Inspired by the goddess herself, our Aphrodite pendant is a beautiful representation of love and beauty. Handcrafted in the picturesque village of Lefkara by two brothers, George and Panagiotis, in a workshop they have been running since 1968. Our chains are made in Italy, ensuring the highest quality materials are used.
Wear this stunning pendant as a symbol of love, beauty, and strength, and let the spirit of Aphrodite guide you. As island natives, George and Panagiotis see themselves as Sister's and Aphrodite's representatives, bringing beauty and love to the world with every piece they create. Discover the magic of Aphrodite with our handmade pendant today.
Aphrodite is the inspiration behind Sister. Like our craftspeople, she is an island native and therefore our Sister and muse. Read more about the makers here.

SISTER jewellery is made of 24k Gold-plated 925 Sterling Silver. Gold plating naturally wears off over time, revealing the silver beneath. Avoid contact with fragrances, lotions, rough surfaces and cleaning agents, especially chlorine as it can permanently damage or discolour your jewellery. Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your jewellery. Always remove your gold plated jewellery in the shower, when swimming or exercising and store it in a dry and air-tight place. Clean it gently with a soft cloth only and avoid rubbing. Unlike mass produced jewellery,handmade pieces will almost always have imperfections and each piece will never be identical to another. This uniqueness is part of the beauty of handmade jewellery.
