The Idol of Pomos, is a prehistoric sculpture from the Cypriot village of Pomos. It dates back to the Chalcolithic period, around the 30th century BC. The pagan sculpture represents a woman with her arms spread and is a cult image representing a fertility or mother goddess. These idols were worn as amulets around the neck, just as this idol wears a small copy of itself. Over one hundred cruciform figures have been discovered which were made in southwestern Cyprus during the period 3000-2500 B.C.
The Eleousa (Virgin of Tenderness) is a type of depiction of the Virgin Mary that represents her compassionate side. She is shown bending to touch her cheek to that of her child, the infant Jesus Christ, who is nestled against her cheek, emphasising the reciprocal affection and relationship between mother and child.

SISTER jewellery is made of 24k Gold-plated 92 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.
