“But if you have tasted anything, then you shall go back down to the underworld and dwell there for the third part of the season...Whenever the earth blossoms with all the sweet-smelling flowers of spring, then you will come back up from the misty darkness, a great wonder to gods and to mortal men.” - from the Homeric “Hymn to Demeter”, the original text of the myth of Persephone.
This pendant is an ode to the fruit that sealed Persephone’s fate: the pomegranate. It features a natural rose cut garnet, a stone used since ancient times as a protection talisman for difficult journeys, and that is named after its striking resemblance to pomegranate seeds. This piece is meant to serve the wearer as a source of personal power, a guide through the shadows, and a reminder that nourishment can be found even in the darkest of times. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back, and it has been blackened and selectively polished to echo the mood of the myth.
