Onyx coming from the Greek word, which means nail of a finger or claw. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping Eros/Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as onyx. Sterling silver, plated in 24k gold. Measuring 40mm in length (including hoop) and 20mm in width at its largest point.
The Gaia collection celebrates the powerful symbols and properties of nature and colour and the meanings they hold. Gaia translates to mean earth and in Greek mythology Gaia was the ancestral mother and goddess of all life. More recently Gaia comes from a thought process in which all living and non living objects are innately connected as one.
