The Argus is a beaded necklace adorned with aquamarine-blue zircon bezel set in 18k plated gold.
Hera was the wife of Zeus who is associated with the colour blue thanks to her presence in the heavens and the chariot in which she rode, drawn by peacocks. When she discovered that her husband had fallen in love with Io, she sent her hundred-eyed servant Argus to guard Io and ensure that Zeus did not approach her. Sadly, the God of Thunder was not to be deterred. He struck down Argus in order to reach Io. Hera, in honour of her faithful servant, placed his hundred eyes onto the tail of her peacock, giving that bird its magnificent appearance.
