An 18K Gold Byzantine Cross with fine wire work and granulation, embellished with Diamonds and an Emerald.
In ancient times, many Greeks made it a ritual to wear emeralds on Fridays to honor the goddess Aphrodite. Emeralds remained associated with her and became recognized as a symbol of eternal love.
Beyond this, legend narrates that the messenger god Hermes engraved what was considered to be the most powerful words in the world, the Words of Creation, on an emerald tablet.
Together, these stories imbue their mythical wonder into the stunning Emerald cut gem centerpiece, set at the heart of this Byzantine Cross; the splendor of God's love in all of Creation.
