These distinctive earrings are both simple and stately, and are based on a Hellenistic Greek example dating from the third century BC today housed in the Villa Giulia Museum in Rome. Here, a stylized lotus blossom hangs beneath a delicate hoop.

In Greek mythology, "Lotis" was a naiad or water nymph of Doris in northern Greece who was transformed into a lotus plant, a story recounted by the Roman imperial poet Ovid, in his Metamorphoses: “Who wills, the truth of this may learn from all quaint people of that land, who still relate the Story of Nymph Lotis. She, they say, while flying from the lust of Priapus, was transformed quickly from her human shape into this tree, though she has kept her name." - Met. 9. 334 ff
