Capricorn • Endless Hoop Charm Earring

The tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, Capricorn derives its name from the Latin Capricornus,meaning “Horned Goat” or “Goat Horn”. And through the ages has been depicted as either a goat, half man half goat or a sea goat creature - and always closely connected to both the land and the sea. The smallest of all the zodiac constellations, Capricorn, is in a region of the sky known as the “Sea” with many water-related constellations such as Piscesand Eridanus.

There are many tales associated with this constellation. Our design was inspired by Amalthea, the Goat,that helped Zeusdefeat of the Titans in the Greekmyths.Amaltheaprovided Zeus with Panikos, the goat horn that forced the Titans to scatter in panic and fear. Discovered in the sea, the Panikos horn was likely a shell that looked like a goat's horn and produced the fearful sound. Upon their defeat, the Titanswere banished to the Underworld, yet as each day as night fell, there was a dreadful sense of fear that the Titans would rise again the next day. For protection, Zeus placed Amalthea in the heavens and prevented their return, as the greatconstellation, the Horned Goat.
