Fleur de Lis stud earrings in sterling silver with diamonds. Approximately 8-10 pts G-VS diamonds.
The Fleur de Lis is known as elegant and fashionable, yet it dates back to ancient Egypt. It has always been steeped in mystery, and has always represented power, enlightenment, and good luck
There is also some mystery in the details of the history. Louis X or Louis XI (no one seems sure) was about to lose France in a battle. The other army was better armed, stronger in numbers, and also stronger physically than the starving French army. Louis put the already ancient symbol on his shield for power and luck. Contrary to all expectations, he won the battle and saved France.
Cerebrating the unexpected success in saving France, Louis declared the lucky and power creating Fleur de Lis to be the symbol of France. There were even times it was illegal for anyone but French nobility to use or display the symbol, which might explain how it came to be so closely associated with wealth and style.
Another mystery is the meaning of Fleur de Lis. Some say it means Flower of Louis. Some say it only means Lily Flower. Like everything else about the Fleur de Lis, it's a mystery. The nice thing about a mystery is that we can choose our own interpretation. What's yours?
