Rhea

Rhea Ring is made with recycled 925 sterling silver 24ct gold plated.

 

Rhea holds the position of Queen among the Titans in Greek mythology and is revered as the goddess of female fertility and the wild mountain regions. In a crucial event, she managed to rescue her son Zeus from being devoured by Cronus, her husband and the Titan ruler. Rhea ingeniously replaced baby Zeus with a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes, fooling Cronus into swallowing the stone instead of his sixth child. As the goddess of female fertility, Rhea was associated with the nurturing and life-giving aspects of nature, while her connection to the untamed mountain regions represented her wild and independent nature. Her role in protecting Zeus exemplifies her maternal instincts and the lengths she went to safeguard her child from a perilous destiny.
