If you’ve ever seen a pair of sea horses courting, you can’t help but be reminded of a fun-loving young couple celebrating the magic of love… holding “hands,” dancing, and snout-to-snout kisses are just a few of the behaviors that sea horses display during their courtship, which makes them the perfect choice for Peter Stone, longtime advocate and lover of the sea in all its aspects, to showcase during this Valentine’s season.
The sea, as fascinating and mysterious as it is, owes much of its wonder and beauty to the astonishing array of life that seethes beneath the surface. Filled with grace and color, the colonies of sea life that enliven the depths are as captivating as the ebb and flow of the ocean itself, and the Sea Horses are no exception.
Popularly named for its resemblance to the equines of land, the Sea Horse is an amazing creature, whose monogamous relationships are exquisite to behold. When a male seahorse falls in love, he will change colors to match his mate, and they will meet in the morning and the evening to entwine tails and swim about the neighborhood.
They engage in spiral dances, free-floating or anchored to a bit of seaweed, and often spiral upwards, snout-to-snout, while mating. One of the most fascinating bits of sea horse trivia is that the males carry the young during pregnancy… but the female is a consistent presence during this phase, particularly visiting in the early morning hours of each day for a brief whirl or walk with her sweetie.
Romance comes in many shapes and sizes, but the romance of the Sea Horse is one of the most beautiful… a graceful underwater dance of majesty, dignity, and tenderness, that lasts as long as they both shall live.
Here at Peter Stone, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate your loving devotion than with a breathtaking sterling silver Peter Stone Sea Horse pendant for your Valentine. Share the romance, honor the majesty, learn from the tenderness… of the amazing Sea Horse!
