    Persephone and Hades Enamel Pin

    This shiny gold enamel pin symbolises the kidnap of Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter, by Hades, god of the underworld.

As a result, she can spend only six months out of the year with her mother; the other six months she is destined to spend in the underworld with Hades. In Greek Mythology, the return of Persephone from the underworld symbolised the return of life in the spring. .
