"The fate of love is that it always sees too little, or too much."
Amelia E. Barr
Why do we love the classic shape of the scallop shell?
It is because it represents the most loved of the seven muses - the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite (Roman - Venus). Myth has it that Aphrodite was born out of the sea's foam and the castrated genitals of her father, Uranus. She floated, perched on a scallop shell, to Paphos on the island of Cyprus, where she became the Goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Aphrodite helps us learn about living in harmony, and is associated with the most emotional of the experiences of womanhood; she teaches how to be a sister, a daughter, a wife and lover. She helps you understand what it means to bear a child, experience passion and appreciate others. Her scallop shell symbol is a timeless representation of our capacity to love.
Our classic Scallop Shell Talisman is, of course, completely handcrafted from Sterling Silver (with full bezel and back), and Fossil Walrus ivory. Six graduated spheres of Sterling Silver climb the side, like bubbles. 1 1/4 inch high, 3/4 inch wide. Our Scallop Shell Talisman will help enrich your life.
