In Greek mythology, Andromeda was the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia. Cassiopeia boasted that Andromeda was more beautiful than the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus. For that, Andromeda was sacrificed to the sea monster Cetus, by being chained to rocks. Captivated by her beauty, Perseus defeated Cetus, and freed Andromeda. Together they are side-by-side in the heavens.
This Andromeda Galaxy necklace features a glass dome, and silver-colored plating that is non-tarnish.
