This heavenly eye popping Vasso necklace is crocheted with special wire and silver/gold thread. There are 8 lustrous fresh water pearls sewn on the cross pendant. This handmade piece is made in Greece.
Ancient Greek legend thought that pearls were the tears of the gods. They also believed that wearing pearls would prevent women from crying on their wedding day.
The ancient Greeks associate these bright gems with Aphrodite, to symbolize her charm. They believed that the goddess of love was born out of the sea completely naked, but with pearls around her neck to which then supernatural and magical powers were conferred.
