This sterling silver whale charm features a bronze star and moon, evoking the beauty and mystery held in the night sky. Those who enjoy studying astronomy know of the Cetus constellation, one of the largest ever charted.
Rising in the Northern skies, Cetus, or the Whale, Constellation tells the story of Andromeda's sacrifice to Cetus the sea monster as punishment for her mother's boastfulness, claiming she was more beautiful than the sea nymphs. This angered Poseidon who ordered Andromeda chained to sea cliffs and eaten by Cetus, but the hero Perseus saves Andromeda by killing Cetus . . . just in the nick of time.
But today we revere whales as gentle giants who can express loving communication through their songs.
