Description
This engraved gem is a metaphor for triumph in life: the mythical hero Perseus slew the Gorgon Medusa and used her frightening head to turn his enemies to stone. He rescued the Princess Andromeda from a sea monster, married her, and became king. To wear this lovely gem today is to link us directly with that vanished person who cherished it so long ago and to write our own chapter in its history - (FJ.7148B)
