CELESTIAL Antique Button Necklace - Mixed Metal Triad
Our Celestial mixed metal triad antique button necklace is cast in bronze from three original Victorian buttons with moon, star and sun symbols. The crescent moon, symbol of the Greek Goddess Artemis and personified by the Goddess Selene, who drives a chariot across the sky, illuminating the air before her with her glowing crown. Symbols from Greek and other ancient history were popular in England after many 18th century travelers brought back art and artifacts from Europe and as far as Egypt on the Grand Tour.
