Hera - Queen of the Gods from Greek Mythology, Goddess of Women and marriage. She was one of the three sisters and wife of Zeus. Known for her vengeful nature and hatred towards the women and resulting children of Zeus' unfaithfulness. In Roman Mythology (sister and wife of Jupiter) her gentler side is depicted and she is shown associated with fertility and motherhood. Cow, lion and peacock are her scared animals. The pomegranate is also one of her symbols.
For all my Roman Laurel Friends. The earring is inset with sardonyx intaglios. It has one square stone inscribed (in Greek) TE KALE ("To the beautiful one") and one teardrop-shaped pendant inscribed with a wreath.
