Goddess Jewellery Collection

Lily Charmed have created a range of goddess jewellery, to signify love, female strength, fertility and communication, the core elements that make women the goddesses they are.

There are many facets of a human that create a goddess, but these were the strengths that we associated with strong women, and wanted to develop these ideas into charms to honour and celebrate the inner goddess in us all.

The design process pulled in many aspects of each goddesses’ mythology and you will see the detail in each design which reflects the nature and story of each goddess so you can choose which reflects your values, strengths or those that you manifest.

The Goddess Design Process

Lily Charmed wanted to create a collection of Goddess charms and necklaces that could be worn every day, to celebrate the divine feminine. Each goddess design can be worn with complimentary charms to tell your unique story, or as a minimalist necklace for everyday as a wearable reminder of your inner goddess.


Hera – Goddess of Women and Mothers - Symbolism and Design elements

Her symbols are a sceptre, pomegranate and lotus flower for fertility and the rune like symbol seen here on her crown. Hera which means ‘Full Moon’ was worshipped in secret rites celebrating the stages of womanhood represented by the new moon, full moon and waning moon – which you can see detailed in a semi-circle surrounding Hera’s sculpted portrait.

On the reverse of the Hera Goddess charm is a ripe and fruitful pomegranate - which symbolizes fertility and abundance, marriage and union, and to some regal authority!



Aphrodite – Goddess of Love - Symbolism and Design elements

The most famous of Greek Goddesses Aphrodite represents love, pleasure, passion and family. She is often represented by fire, roses, doves, pearls and a girdle. The Roman equivalent of this Goddess was Venus and like many goddess archetypes share their symbols with pre Greek and roman goddesses. The front of the Aphrodite charm, has a dove, pearl shell and a flower.

The reverse side of this pendant features sacred geometry called the flower of Aphrodite which is a flowers like shape that traces the orbit of planet Venus in the sky as viewed from earth. Because of how closely it orbits the sun, Venus seems to move in odd ways relative to the earth. It appears to disappear from the sky entirely for several days, only to reappear on the opposite horizon.



Demeter – Goddess of Fertility - Symbolism and Design elements

Greek Earth Goddess of the harvest and seasons. This EARTH mother goddess is often symbolized by an ear of wheat which we have incorporated into the frame of the charm. Her counterpoint with similar attributes in Roman mythology is Ceres. The term Mother Earth is thought to originate from Demeter. Demeter was considered to have been the one to give the gift of agriculture to humans.

The Greeks believed that the Underworld played a key role in the cycle of life. The dead were buried within the earth and went to the Underworld beneath it. Beneath that same soil, the seeds that grew into food crops germinated.

The snake in Demeter’s hair is both a symbol of the underworld - her chariot was said to be pulled by snakes – and also a creature found under rocks near crops. The Greeks recognized that death and decay were vital to make the foods they depended on grow. In the cycle of life and death, the breakdown of dead material nourished the plants that eventually nourished humans.

On the reverse of the Demeter charm is and ancient solar cross, which is closely associated with the sun and its life-giving properties. In many ancient cultures, the sun was worshipped as a deity or revered as a powerful force of nature. The solar cross symbolizes the sun's energy and its role in sustaining life on Earth



Iris Goddess of Communication - Symbolism and Design elements

This golden winged Goddess – a divine messenger of the Olympian Gods is associated with the sky and sea - watering the sea with a pitcher taken from the clouds and giving drinks to the other gods. This symbolism is shown as the focus of our design.

Iris is often represented by a rainbow created by gust of wings as she flew as fast as light. We tried the design with a rainbow behind the flying goddess, but it became too crowded and the strength of the winged goddess was powerful enough without the rainbow.

Iris is often depicted holding a staff with entwined serpents called a caduceus – a symbol of logistics and negotiation. This caduceus symbol forms the reverse of the Iris Goddess charm.



What Goddess are you?

To find which goddess you are, read through the mythology of Aphrodite, Hera, Demeter and Iris below – and see which you connect with?


Who is Aphrodite – Goddess of Love?

Aphrodite is a prominent figure in Greek mythology, revered as the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She holds a significant place among the Olympian gods, being one of the twelve major deities residing on Mount Olympus. According to myth, Aphrodite's birth is surrounded by various narratives.

One of the most well-known stories suggests that she emerged from the sea foam created by the severed genitals of the sky god Uranus, which were thrown into the ocean by his son Cronus. As she rose from the waves, she was greeted by the Horae, who dressed her and adorned her with gifts, making her the epitome of beauty.

Aphrodite's influence extended far and wide, impacting not just romantic love but also inspiring desires, passions, and affections of various kinds. She was often depicted as a stunning woman, radiating charm and allure, accompanied by symbols like the dove, swan, and myrtle. Her myths often involve romantic entanglements, sometimes with other gods like Ares, the god of war, or mortals like Adonis.

Throughout ancient Greek culture, Aphrodite was worshipped in various forms, with festivals and rituals dedicated to her across the Mediterranean region. Her worship was particularly prominent in the city of Corinth, where she was honoured with a grand temple known as the Temple of Aphrodite.

Aphrodite's influence transcended Greek mythology, and she was later identified with the Roman goddess Venus, further solidifying her status as a timeless symbol of love, beauty, and desire in Western culture.

 Who is Hera – Goddess of Women and Mothers?

Hera is a significant figure in Greek mythology, often depicted as the queen of the gods and the wife of Zeus, the king of the gods. While she is associated with women and mothers to some extent, her domain and attributes extend beyond those roles.

In Greek mythology, Hera is primarily known as the goddess of marriage, family, and childbirth. She embodies the ideals of matrimony and fidelity, representing the sanctity and stability of marriage. As the queen of the gods, she presides over the union between spouses and protects the institution of marriage.

Hera is also revered as a divine mother figure, although her motherly attributes are sometimes overshadowed by her roles as a wife and queen. She is often depicted as a nurturing figure, overseeing the welfare of her children and taking an interest in the well-being of mortal mothers and their offspring.

Despite her association with marriage and motherhood, Hera is also known for her fierce and vengeful nature, particularly in response to her husband Zeus's infidelities. She is depicted as a jealous and vindictive goddess, often punishing Zeus's paramours and their illegitimate children.

Hera's symbols include the peacock, cow, and pomegranate, and she is often depicted wearing a crown or diadem, emphasizing her status as the queen of the gods. While Hera is indeed associated with women and mothers, her mythology encompasses a broader range of attributes, including marriage, family, childbirth, and divine sovereignty.


Who is Demeter – Goddess of Fertility?

Demeter is a significant figure in Greek mythology, revered as the goddess of agriculture, fertility, and the harvest. She is one of the twelve Olympian deities, residing on Mount Olympus as one of the principal gods and goddesses of ancient Greece.

In Greek mythology, Demeter is typically depicted as a matronly figure, associated with the bountiful abundance of the earth and the cycle of agricultural seasons.

One of the central myths involving Demeter revolves around her daughter Persephone, who was abducted by Hades, the god of the underworld. Devastated by the loss of her daughter, Demeter wandered the earth in search of her, neglecting her duties as the goddess of agriculture. As a result, crops withered and died, threatening famine. When Persephone was allowed to spend part of the year with her mother on earth, Demeter rejoiced, bringing fertility and abundance to the land. However, when Persephone returned to the underworld, Demeter mourned her absence, and the earth became barren once again.

Demeter's influence extends beyond agriculture to include the nurturing aspects of the natural world. She is often depicted as a benevolent figure, overseeing the growth of plants and the well-being of farmers. In some traditions, she is also associated with the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, reflecting the seasonal changes in the natural world.

Demeter was honoured with various festivals and rituals throughout ancient Greece, particularly during the harvest season when her blessings were most evident. The Eleusinian Mysteries, a secretive religious ceremony held in her honour, celebrated the cycle of life, death, and rebirth and offered devotees hope for a prosperous afterlife.

Who is Iris – Goddess of Communication?

In Greek mythology, Iris is a significant figure known as the personification of the rainbow and the messenger of the gods. She is often depicted as a youthful maiden with golden wings, symbolizing her swift movement between the mortal world and Mount Olympus, the realm of the gods.

As a messenger of the gods, Iris delivers messages between the divine beings and mortals, carrying out tasks assigned by Zeus and the other Olympian deities. Her primary role is to convey divine commands, announcements, and warnings, ensuring communication between the gods and humanity.

Iris's name itself is derived from the Greek word for rainbow, reflecting her association with the colourful arc that appears in the sky after rain showers. In ancient Greek culture, rainbows were seen as a bridge between the heavens and the earth, and Iris was believed to travel along this celestial pathway.

While Iris is not as prominent as some other Olympian deities in Greek mythology, she plays a crucial role in facilitating communication and maintaining order within the divine realm. Her presence is often invoked in various myths and rituals involving gods and mortals, highlighting her significance as the divine messenger and symbol of the rainbow.
