Hidden deep inside a library in Oxford, England, those who know where to look will find a small papyrus manuscript. This prized and ancient paper, dating back to the 6th century B.C., contains fragments of poetry by Sappho, the Ancient Greek lyric poetess. Many consider her to be the world’s first — and finest — writer of love poetry. If the idea of Sappho’s words surviving the millennia pulls your heartstrings, then our Eos Blue Chalcedony Earrings will sound like a symphony.
These brilliant blue gemstones have formed slowly through the ages, from before Sappho put ancient ink to papyrus through to her exaltation as “the 10th muse.” These ancient stones have been faceted as carefully as Sappho crafted her words, and set in 14K gold-layered sterling silver so the brilliant blue shines like a line of her legendary love poetry. The message from our Eos Earrings is loud and clear: It is impossible to silence the poetry of passion.
