A Goddess of Grain crowned in wheat and adorned with the blade of a sickle. Demeter brings to life all our dreams of abundance. Her profile is carved beautifully into a deeply green bloodstone punctuated with brilliant flecks of red. The stone has a beautiful translucence when held up to the light. A handmade twisted Gold-Filled frame complements the stone intaglio perfectly. Every other twist of the frame is decorated with a stamped poppy flower. One of Demeter's symbols: poppies grew wild among the wheat of Ancient Greece. A bale and ring make this piece easy to wear however you like; alone or layered, on a ribbon, or paired with one of our Ancient Influences married chains. Circa 1860
Details.....The fob measures 1.19" by 11.17". In Good Antique condition. Imperfections are to be expected in antique jewelry; it is considered part of its charm.
