The Fancy Cable Athena necklace is simple yet beautiful. Bold decorative links highlight Athena the Goddess of Love on on a decorative 16" chain dipped in 22KT gold. The decorative clasp also serves as a charm holder allowing the medal to be removed so the necklace can be worn as a collar too.
Athena is the Goddess of Wisdom, but also the Warrior Goddess who symbolizes higher spiritual understanding. On the reverse side is a Great Horned Owl behind her shield who is also one of her symbols. Another symbol of Wisdom, the warrior bird and represents strength, courage, and intuitive vision. This wise owl is one of her symbols and frequently is depicted facing forward, vigilantly watching over loved ones.
According to Ted Andrews, author of Animal Speak: The Owl is the symbol of the moon, the feminine and insight. Owl is believed to have great healing powers. Because of its association with the moon, it is also tied into fertility, seduction, illusion and mystery. The Greeks associated the owl with Athena, and it was the symbol of higher wisdom and understanding.
