The goddess of love for the female beauty jewellery

1.-2nd century AD

The hand motive is in the religious field associated with the cult of Jupiter Dolichenus or the Sabatius cult. It probably refers here to the representation of a hand with an apple on the goddess of Venus. Some Venus figures from Roman times wear the apple in their hands as a sign of beauty.

An ancient Greek legend tells of a battle among the goddesses Juno, Minerva and Venus: who is the most beautiful? Jupiter was diplomatic. He asked Paris to make the judgment. Juno promised him power and size, Minerva tried to bribe him with wisdom and glory. Here Venus, the goddess of love, promised him the most beautiful woman in Greece to the wife.

With success! "Even if the ' judgement of Paris ' finally triggered the Trojan war, the Golden Apple is continually as a symbol of feminine beauty. Jewellery, so, in the literal sense!
