Aster Statement Earrings
Elegant yet dainty at its core, the Aster is a beautiful daisy-like flower with yellow centers and ray-like petals. There are an estimated 180 different species of Aster, varying in different hues of purple, pink, blue, white, and yellow. Part of the same family as Sunflowers, the Aster’s name originates from the Greek word for “star” as a reference to the flower’s star-shaped flowerheads. The uniqueness of the Aster or Sunflower family is that each flower is composed of many small flowers in a disk-like flowerhead. Even the petals are individual flowers.
Asters are often considered a symbol of elegance, love, and patience. Additionally, each color holds further meaning. Purple, the most common Aster color, symbolizes wisdom and nobility.
These Aster statement earrings are cast in hand-patinated bronze with pale purple cast glass flowers, each with a 24kt gold plated center. The posts are .925 Sterling Silver. They are 0.9" across at widest, and approximately 1.75" long.
