This pair of unique silver jewelry Cucuteni goddess earrings takes an ancient clay figurine dating back some 5,000 years as its inspiration in an asymmetrical front and back setting.
These silver goddess earrings are inspired by an ancient civilization's art, re-imagined as a gorgeous pair you'll want to wear with everything! The Cucuteni culture, considered the birth of European civilization, dates back over 5,000 years to the area we now call southeastern Europe. They were prolific pottery makers, sculptors, and artisans who employed a distinctive graphic decorative style that adorns their many artifacts.
Our Cucuteni goddess earrings are based on both the front and back details of a Cucuteni clay figurine dating to between 4300 and 4200 B.C. in the area that is now northeast Romania. One earring details the figurine's front pattern and the other earring the back.
The Cucuteni goddess figurine is a decidedly feminine silhouette with carved patterns we believe symbolized and stimulated the process of becoming. The feminine silhouette dominates in the many Cucuteni ceramic figurines and sculpted works we have found from this time, indicating the culture's particular reverence for the feminine or goddess attributes.
Each piece of Zealandia silver goddess jewelry is unique, celebrating ancient cultures, beliefs, symbolic meanings, and beauty. Our Cucuteni goddess earrings make a wonderful addition to your diverse jewelry collection and can be paired with any of our Cucuteni goddess pendants.
