These earrings are our only natural stone earring set.
This earring is inspired by the legend of Genevieve of Brabant. It is modeled after a gate surrounding an ancient refuge for women. Usually in myth, the hero passes through a gate to symbolically mark the beginning of his journey. In this sense, they are places of departure symbolically similar to coastal ports next to great oceans from which voyages have ventured from throughout history. Genevieve of Brabant was chaste wife falsely accused and repudiated on the word of a rejected suitor. She departed her home in fear and fled execution residing in a teepee-like structure beyond the threshold of a cave with her son for six years.
