Story

The dawn, the sun and stars...in Greek mythology, Helios was the god who brought forth the sun to the morning sky, riding upon his golden, thundering horse-drawn chariot.

Eos, the dawn, and Selene, the moon, were his sisters. It was said he rode around the sea, Oceanus, East to West returning in a huge cup or bed. In Roman mythology, Aurora was comparable, and in some depictions in Baroque art, appears closer to a male figure. Perhaps this is Aurora in all her splendor?

By Whiteside and Blank, this 14k yellow gold double locket's imagery is replete with passionate energy. Four horses gallop and leap pulling a classical ancient chariot. Helios's arm is raised holding up the sun, an old European cut diamond of .10 carats (H-I color, SI1 clarity). On his feet are strapped sandals.

An aureole of light emanates from around his head and flowing robes trail behind him. Three stars appear to the left of the sun, being chased away by the light. In relief, this image reads clear and distinct on the front the locket. The sides are plain and polished.

The reverse holds a fancy hand-engraved monogram with the letters, RSC or likely RCS for the convention of placing the last name in the middle.
