From Yasmin Everley's Astrology collection the earrings take the form of a simple stud which supports a circle - considered by the Ancient Greeks to be the most geometrically perfect shape – and within it a cluster of the stars accurately forms the constellation, suspended in space by a delicate wire.
In the Ancient Greek tale, Leo is associated with the first of Heracles' twelve labours, the capture of the Nemean Lion. The Nemean Lion was thought invincible due to its impenetrable hide so Heracles strangled the lion to death and wore its skin as a cloak. Zeus honoured the lion by placing it in the stars.
