These fantastically unique and interesting earrings feature crystal quartz and pearl set within antique gold detailing.
In many cultures, pearls symbolise purity and innocence, which is why it’s tradition for a bride to wear pearls on her wedding day.
Pearls have been used as adornment for centuries —at least as far back as ancient Greece, where they believed pearls were tears of the gods. Other cultures associated pearls with the moon, calling them “teardrops of the moon.” Hindu folklore explained that dewdrops fell from the moon into the sea, and Krishna picked one for his daughter on her wedding day.
Tudor England was known as the Pearl Age because of the stone’s popularity with the upper class during the sixteenth century. Portraits showed royals wearing pearl jewellery and clothing adorned with pearls.
They are set on 925 sterling silver and finished with a 22 carat gold plating.
Size: 3.5cm long and 2.5cm wide.
