Scorpio Astrology Drop Studs

£79.00


Mix astronomy and astrology with delicate constellation earrings featuring your own star sign.

From Yasmin Everley's 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. These studs usually come in bright polished silver but they also look great in oxidised silver if you prefer

In Ancient Greece, the story of Scorpio is told in different versions of the myth of the great hunter Orion. In one, he comes across the seven daughters of Altas and Pleione and tries to pursue them. When they cry out to Zeus for help he transforms the sisters into the stars known as the Pleiades and causes a scorpion to kill Orion with its venomous sting who is then placed to protect them in the stars.

This piece is handcrafted using traditional lost wax casting and hallmarked by the London Assay Office. Please read our guide to jewellery care to ensure it lasts for many years!
