Sun of Knowledge Earrings
These whimsical sun earrings hide a delightful secret - they represent far more than just a smiling face. The sun as a design motif has been extremely important throughout history, indicating the significance of the sun in our lives and, in fact, to life itself. The sun represents knowledge and enlightenment and has been the symbol of life to mankind throughout history. The ancient Egyptians worshipped the sun god Horus. The Greeks and Romans worshipped a sun god who drove his blazing chariot every day across the heavens. Even Sunday, the sacred day of Christianity, is named for the sun.

DVB utilizes the “cire-perdue” or lost-wax casting method of jewelry creation. Lost-wax casting is actually an ancient method of jewelry production used in creating the finest jewelry. Owing to the nature of the technique and the hand finishing of each casting, small variations in dimension, weight and finish will occur.
