Yasmin Everley Jewellery - Taurus Astrology Necklace In 9ct Gold

In the Ancient Greek tale, Taurus is often thought to be the animal who sired the Minotaur after Poseidon causes Queen Pasiphae mad with love for the bull to punish King Mino. He later became wild and had to be captured by Heracles for his seventh task. Taurus is also associated with the bull that Zeus took as a disguise when he abducted Pasiphae's mother Europa. The pendant is formed of a circle - considered to be the most geometrically perfect shape - holding an aropa. The pendant is formed of a circle - considered to be the most geometrically perfect shape - holding an accurate cluster of the stars which form the constellation, held suspended in space by delicate wire. The chain is a rope chain, reminiscent of both the sailors who have used these stars to navigate through the centuries and our coiling strands of DNA. The Astrology Collection is inspired by the way our interwoven knowledge of science and mythology are inextricably linked to create our personal identities as our stories form our cultural DNA. Even solid gold can become tarnished over time, if this happens the most simple way to restore the necklace is to use Gold Dip, taking care to keep the clasp dry. A polishing cloth may be used on the pendant but is not recommended for the chain as fibres may become caught and pulling the chain repetitively may weaken it. read more
