HISTORY

inspires us

The river earrings are inspired by ancient Inca astrology.
This piece is delicately inlaid with gems like turquoise, the beautiful abalone shell and the ancient spondylus shell.

It is said that the Incas came to acquire great astrological knowledge thanks to their constant astronomical observation.
They knew the Milky Way which they called Mayu, which translated from Quechua means river, a great river of stars and constellations.

They classified the stars into two groups, the first consisting of more prominent stars, and the second consisting of cosmic clouds.
