From the Astrology collection the earrings take the form of a simple stud which supports a circle - considered by the Ancient Greeks to be the most geometrically perfect shape – and within it a cluster of the stars accurately forms the constellation, suspended in space by a delicate wire.
In the Ancient Greek tale, after Zeus had defeated his father Cronos, he subdued the race of the giants, children of Gaia. In revenge, Gaia sent the monster Typhon to destroy the Olympian gods who transformed themselves into animals to hide. Aphrodite and her son Eros dived into the sea as twin fish which, in gratitude for borrowing their form, she later placed in the stars.
