The owl has been used for many centuries in human culture to symbolize intelligence and mystery. Being a nocturnal bird with glowing eyes at night, they are also associated with inner-wisdom, intuition and psychic ability. In ancient Greece, the owl was a symbol for the goddess Athena, daughter of Zeus, and denoted prosperity and fortune. And all over the world, across many cultures, the owl is seen as a symbol of wisdom for many. And in modern times this has resulted in the creation of the owl necklace which embodies all of these meanings.
