These delicate yet statement wings, bring together the qualities of love and friendship, channelling the ancient tale of Periphas and Phene.
Periphas, the King of Attica, was loved by his people so much, that he was honoured as a ‘God’ amongst mortals, angering Zeus. In wanting to save him from the wrath of Zeus, Apollo intervened and instead of death, Periphas was turned into an eagle. His wife, Phene, not wanting to be without him, begged Zeus to transform her so they could be together.
These Periphas & Phene earrings are the perfect pair of wings to dress up a casusal outfit, moving from day to evening wear.
