Atlas Necklace, 925 Sterling Silver

The Greek titan of astronomy and navigation who symbolized the quality of endurance is represented by the minimalist Atlas necklace.  Atlas, the leader of the Titans was vanquished I n a war against Zeus, the leader of the Olympian Gods. As a result,  Atlas was given the ultimate punishment by King Zeus: he was required to hold up the heavens with his bare hands and bear their weight on his shoulders forever. Atlas taught mankind the science of astronomy. The North-South axis of the sphere on Atlas' shoulders points towards the North Star, so a lost traveler can use the statue as a compass. Atlas was also the god who taught humans the skill of astronomy, a tool utilized by sailors for navigation and farmers for season measurement. These duties were frequently merged, and Atlas became the god who rotated the heavens and caused the stars to revolve.Others claim he was instead (or subsequently) designated guardian of the pillars that separated the earth and sky. This necklace was inspired by Greek mythology.
