Daphne, the daughter of a river god, is associated through mythology with leaves and laurels. The laurel was symbolic of Apollo’s love of Daphne. After rejecting Apollo, like she did every lover, Apollo was angry. To save herself from his wrath, she fell to the Earth and was transformed into a laurel. This leafy symbol is one of both connections to the Earth and of protection. Stay grounded as you drape it around your neck. This simple yet beautiful gold necklace will elevate any of your favorite outfits. The two leaves are fixed to a delicate gold link chain, perfect for layering with other necklaces or worn alone.
