La Sirene Earrings

€1,619.00 EUR

Partenope was a siren mermaid who fell in love with the sailor Odysseus, and, upon being rejected, threw herself into the sea. Legend has it that she washed ashore in southern Italy, in what is today known as the city of Naples. She lends this metropolis her name, as an alternative way that locals refer to this ancient town. Partenope is also said to have quenched the fires of Vesuvius with water from her breasts. She is identified with being a creative, competitive and wild influence. Having been born from the blood-drops of Achelous the river God, later in life she was so confident in her musical abilities that she confronted the muses, challenging them to a musical duel and losing only because the muses are undefeatable as the source of all creativity. Partenope’s image brings courage, creativity, pure beauty in all its natural forms, and unleashes within the wearer a boldness that is characteristic of the mermaid herself. The earrings are set with garnet, amethyst, and freshwater pearls, as well as traditional, hand-set enamel.

Color: Solid Gold

Handcrafted and individually cast in solid yellow gold and rose gold; also available in white gold upon request. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Nickel and lead free. Items ship from Italy. Olivia carves each piece from wax, so please allow a 4-8 week turn-around time for gold pieces made-to-order.

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
