Modern, simplified drop based off an acanthus flowering stalk with two little curling leaves. Yet another homage to Ancient Greek culture, the Victorians used acanthus leaf motifs on nearly everything. In Victorian culture, acanthus symbolized a heavenly garden, and in the language of flowers stood for Arts and Artifice. Only fitting to name the earrings after the goddess Athena.They are on handmade sterling silver hooks, and measure 4.5 cm or 1.75 inches from top of the hook to the bottom leaf.
