Mars is named after the Roman god of war, owing perhaps to the planet’s reddish hue, which gives it the color of blood. For this reason, the symbol associated with Mars represents the god of wars’ shield and spear. Interestingly enough, is the symbol for “male”.
The black background is made of black enamel and the rest of the pendant is made of 925 sterling silver. There is a 925 sterling silver chain included with this item.
