An elegant pair of drop earrings, perfect for adding a final touch to a special outfit. The creamy pearl suspended from the rectangular Calabrian coin stud via delicate chain offers a subtle and contemporary twist on the classic pearl earring.

Originating from the Greek colony based in the Italian region of Calabria during the Classical period, the coin represents the seafaring inhabitants of the area. In antiquity, the scallop shell was a symbol associated with femininity and fertility as well as protection. A stylised dolphin and a tiny crab can also be seen on the reverse of the coin.
