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. These studs usually come in bright polished silver but they also look great in oxidised silver if you prefer.
In the Ancient Greek tale, Virgo is associated with the story of Demeter, the goddess of harvest, and her daughter Persephone. While Persephone was out gathering flowers, Hades abducted her and made her his wife. In her grief Demeter caused all the harvests to fail until Hades agreed to give her back for half the year and so the seasons were created.
