The Greek Night Goddess “Nyx” often shown with an owl and, in this case, the Crescent moon. Sometimes she carries her sleeping children while in flight. She has the ability to conjure sleep and death. She is feared by even Zeus. Married to Erebus, the God of darkness, their progeny include: The fates: Sleep, Death and Pain. Don’t ever mess with Nyx! 

Beautifully carved from pink conch shell, this cameo depicts with finesse the goddess and her symbolic tokens, the owl and the crescent moon. Set in 10 karat yellow gold and accented with seed pearls, she's delicately fierce!
