Ephesus Bee Lucky Coin Necklace
The hardworking honeybee has long been a spiritual symbol for overcoming the impossible. Wear this totem as a reminder to chase your dreams.
The original coin dates back to c. 370-350 BC. The bee is said to represent the ancient city of Ephesus. The stag, on the other side, is a possible reference to the Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, the forest and the moon.
The pendant is a 24-karat gold-plated medallion cast in brass from an ancient coin.
Chain is gold-filled, which makes it more durable against tarnishing than gold-plated chains.
*Pendant is gold-plated with an antiqued finish. As with all gold-plated jewelry, this pendant will eventually tarnish, but you can slow down the natural process by keeping it dry and storing it in the pouch when not wearing it. *
