Little wings for your ears with a lace twist! Talaria actually means winged sandals, a symbol of the Greek messenger god Hermes (Mercury). Part angel, part mythic gods of Antiquity, you can interpret these stud earrings as a street style statement, a religious symbol, a symbol of speed or freedom, or to express your love of birds. Anything goes...
They make for great wedding gifts, bridesmaids gifts, graduation gifts, Christmas gifts, first communion gifts, marathon runner or athlete gift, female pilot 's license graduation gift or Valentines day gifts (think cupid's wings). In mythology, you will find winged gods in most cultures including Ekek in Philippine mythology, Garuda in Hindu mythology, Huitzilopochtli in Aztec mythology, Kinnara and Kinnari of Thai or Southeast Asian mythology, Pegasus also in Greek mythology.
