What iridescent treasure lies beneath the carapace... Crafted from Sterling Silver and natural freshwater pearls, the Shell Drop Pearl Earrings' design pays homage to the shell that carried Venus ashore.
From the Birth of Venus Collection: At birth, the Goddess of Love arose from the sea. She was born of the sea foam and rode upon a shell to the island of Cyprus. Evocative of the sea and the shell that carried her ashore, Pink Scolecite, Pearl, and Opal converge in celebration of the birth of Venus. As the Roman counterpart to Aphrodite, Venus was worshiped as the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility. Her festival was Aphrodisia, which was celebrated annually in midsummer.
Please note: Since all the gemstones are natural (not synthetically produced), there may be slight variations in colour and size from piece to piece. These differences should not affect the overall look and feel of the piece.
