| Merchant: Wolf & Badger Mix astronomy and astrology with delicate earrings featuring your own constellation. In the Ancient Greek tale, when Heracles was sent to destroy the Hydra, Hera attempted to thwart his attempt by sending a crab to attack his feet. Heracles crushed the crab to death and Hera, in gratitude for the creature's efforts, honoured the crab by placing it in the stars. The ring has split shoulders supporting two tiny black diamonds which represent the infinite darkness of the unknown. In the centre, 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. Solid Sterling Silver can become tarnished over time, if this happens the best method is to clean your ring is to use a soft toothbrush and a gentle, diluted washing up liquid, air dry and then apply a polishing cloth. Care should be taken to not rub too firmly on the stone settings and avoid wearing during sports and other activities as even diamonds can be damaged when struck at the wrong angle!
