Vintage Libra Pendant
Cool vintage Libra pendant in 18ct gold. The scales are finished in coloured enamel: green and gold, with a white star above - a strangely attractive colour combination. Dating from the 1990s with subtle textured finish to the gold.
Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom, lends her Scales of Justice to the seventh sign of the zodiac: Libra. Libra is the cardinal modality of the three air signs; it's ruling planet is Venus, and the sun transits this sign from the 23rd of September to the 23rd of October. The moon was said to have been in Libra when Rome was founded, hence the histories stating: "Everything was balanced under this righteous sign" (qua condita Roma).

We offer detailed and accurate condition reports on each listing. These pieces are antique, vintage, or pre-loved, often over 100 years old so they're going to have lived a life. A healthy patina and the odd scuff/scrape are quite normal... it's part of their charm! Everything we present has been checked over by our jeweller and should be good for wear for many years to come (unless otherwise stated) but please remember to treat them with appropriate care and consideration for their age.
