The Ancient Greeks believed that the sister of Alexander the Great, Thessalonike, was turned into a mermaid upon her death in 295 BCE. She lived in the waters of the crystal clear Aegean Sea, and would approach sailors who passed by with a question, “Is King Alexander alive?” The sailors must answer “He lives and reigns and conquers the world,” in order to be granted safe passage. The Aegean Pendant is a tribute to the warm waters of the Mediterranean where Thessalonike dwelled, and to the connections of familial love everywhere. Made to order in amethyst and solid gold. Pictured in 14k yellow gold.
