| Merchant: Wolf & Badger In the Ancient Greek tale, when Zeus was born his mother, Rhea, had to conceal him as his father Cronos has eaten all of his previous children to postpone a prophesy of his death. The baby was nursed by the goat-nymph Amaltheia who Zeus, in gratitude, later placed in the stars to honour her. The earring takes 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. This pendant usually comes in bright polished silver but also looks great in oxidised silver if you prefer. The Astrology Collection is inspired by the way our knowledge of science is interwoven with the enduring legacy of the classical myths. For me, the two are inextricably linked, thus creating both our personal identities, and the stories which form our cultural DNA. Solid Sterling Silver can become tarnished over time, if this happens the most simple way to restore your earrings is to use Silver Dip. A polishing cloth may also be used.
