The Rat Tail Halo
Elevate your classic solitaire stud with this spiral-shaped earring jacket. Mix & match this Halo with any diamond or coloured stud to add a touch of joy and playfulness. It will adapt effortlessly to your own studs (ideal stone size between .20 and 1ct) simply slip the stud’s pin through the Halo.
Inspired by the Chinese zodiac sign of the rat, the Rat Tail Halo celebrates quick thinking, perspicacity and success. I wanted to pay homage to the ingenious animal through its most recognizable physical attribute: its long tail. Entirely set with rubies, the red colour symbolises good fortune and joy, especially during the Chinese New Year.
The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to the myth, the Jade Emperor announced the order of the Zodiac calendar would be decided by the order in which animals would arrive to his party. The rat tricked the ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, the rat jumped down and landed ahead of the ox, arriving first.
