The PERISTERA necklace is a protective amulet that features a hand-engraved lemon topaz gem. The intaglio on the stone depicts the nymph Peristera, who in ancient mythology was transformed into a dove by by the demigod Eros. The dove is one of Aphrodite’s sacred birds and symbols, which explains the bird’s connection to the goddess of love.

In addition to its coffin shaped design, the lemon topaz gem is well-known for its ability to promote emotional well-being. Its bright and sunny color is believed to bring joy and happiness into the wearer’s life by encouraging positive thinking and elevating one’s mood. It is also said to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, and stress.

Like all of Rafael Indiana’s creations, the PERISTERA necklace is completely hand-sculpted. Each piece is meticulously carved from wax, ensuring that every necklace is unique. This attention to detail and craftsmanship is what gives the necklace its authentic ancient beauty.

Every Rafael Indiana product is handcrafted by artisans in Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, from wax making each piece unique. We believe it gives the product its authentic ancient beauty. Every design comes with a unique story.
