If only Persephone had just worn these little beauties instead of eating the real fruit. These gold-plated brass earring is shaped like a pomegranate with turquoise or white stone beads set as the fruit’s seeds.
Many holy scripts refer to the pomegranate seed, pay tribute to the beauty of the blooming pomegranate and the taste of its fruit, making it the symbol of prosperity and fertility. Interestingly, in modern Turkey today, many families throw a pomegranate on the floor and “crack” it on the New Year’s Eve to have a plentiful new year.
These wearable wonders look particularly stunning paired with dresses or lightweight spring scarves and look equally chic with casual jeans and a crisp white shirt.
Measures 2" in length from the top of the hook to the bottom of the pomegranate and 1 inch width with french hook that is nickel free. For scale, please see all images. Imported.
