According to Greek myth, the symbol of Cancer—often a crab, though sometimes a lobster—is based on the Karkinos (Greek: "Cancer"), a crab crushed under the foot of Hercules, and whose remains were placed in the sky by Hera, forming the Cancer constellation.
In Roman variations of the story, it is Juno—Hera's counterpart in Roman mythology—who places the crab in the sky.
This pendant measures 20mm across the widest part and 25mm in length including the ring bail. (this may alter slightly due to the fact that each one is made by hand.)
It is stamped on the reverse with SWALK and .925. Guaranteeing you that this is a genuine swalk product and is made from sterling silver.
I made this Zodiac collection with a view for it to be perfect for layering with your other swalk pieces or to personalise a collection of charms and gems.
It is light enough for everyday wear but sturdy and by no means delicate.
You have a choice during the checkout process of buying the charm on its own or having it hung on a chain (with which you can choose the chain length and weight)
I offer these Zodiac pendants with a Rolo or Belcher Chain. I find this chain compliments my jewelry the best. It is a chain that has its origins in the Victorian period, and I feel it marries well with my style.
Can see the length you want? please contact me and I will be happy to add it for you.
