Story

These gorgeous studs are inspired by the myth of the Pleiades. These were the seven sisters in Greek mythology, daughters of the Titan god Atlas and the nymph Pleione, and their loveliness was renowned. Late one night, the hunter Orion was passing through the forest when he saw the Pleiades basking in a moonlit glade. He was instantly enamored of the beauty and grace of the seven sisters, who were uninterested in his advances. Spurned but unrelenting, Orion pursued them anyway, forcing the sisters to flee.

Watching from Mount Olympus, Zeus took pity on the Pleiades. The king of gods transformed the sisters into seven white doves that flew up to the heavens and took their place as stars forever after. If you look closely in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere winter, you can catch sight of lovelorn Orion, still following the seven sisters in vain pursuit across the sky.

The gypsy-set white sapphires in these studs shine like stars buried in gold.

Please note: If you would like to switch the sapphires for another gemstone, please shoot us an email and we can create a custom order for you <3

 

About Our Metals

18k Gold Vermeil
Solid 925 sterling silver plated with a 3 micron thick layer of 18 karat gold. Five times thicker than industry standard gold plating and composed entirely of precious metals. Gold Vermeil is a French technique that is a significant step up from regular gold-plated jewelry, which is most often made from cheap brass with a thin flash-plating of gold.

14k Solid Gold
Solid gold is an investment that lasts forever and is perfect to be passed down through generations, historically appreciating in value. Each solid gold piece is made to order within 4 - 6 weeks in our NYC studio.
