Description

Our fanciful earrings were inspired by an Etruscan gold earring in the form of a dolphin in The Met collection. This beautifully detailed, original earring was made in the fifth century B.C. in what is now central Italy.

In Etruscan art, dolphins with tails in the air, like this one, also appear as supports for statues of Poseidon and Aphrodite. The connection with Poseidon is obvious; the association with Aphrodite is not accidental but is an allusion to her birth from the sea. In this earring the dolphin should be considered as a symbol of Aphrodite and, as such, an appropriate ornament for a fashionable lady.
