Aphrodite Goddess of Love Necklace with Garnet
Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty
Aphrodite (called Venus by the ancient Romans) is the most universal of all the Greek goddesses, as all humans desire love—it comes as no surprise that there is an iteration of Aphrodite’s role in almost every polytheistic religion.
The ancient Greeks had many words to describe the different types of love, so it is no stretch that there might be more than one goddess to govern them all. Plato and Xenophon both make reference to two Aphrodites.
The ‘Celestial Aphrodite’ was born when the blood of Uranos fell from the heavens, striking sea foam, from which the goddess appeared. This was the goddess of pure, spiritual love of the body and soul that only grows with age.
Whatever form she takes, Aphrodite delights in nurturing all sorts of love. Wear the Aphrodite medallion when you're feeling amorous, going on a first date, or as a shining reminder that you are worthy of love, from others as well as from yourself.
