Alpheus was a great river God of Greek Mythology, represented by the River Alph which coursed through Ancient Greece. It was told that Alpheus rushed across the sea to the object of his affections, Arethusa, to an island. There a flowing spring came forth, representing requited love, and communion. Coleridge immortalised the river in his poem “A Vision in a Dream” in which he describes a fantastical garden full of worldly pleasures, and describes how “Alph the sacred river, ran through caverns measureless to man, down to a sunless sea”. The Alpheus Pendant made from carved Citrine then set with blue sapphires in 18K solid gold.
