Tria Prima Salt Mini Hoop Single Earring
Mini gold pendant single mini hoop earring by Rachel Entwistle, inspired by ancient alchemists, who believed that all material substances are made up of the “Tria Prima” or Three Primes; mercury (spirit), salt (body) and sulphur (soul). It was thought that when the Primes were in balance the body would be healthy, free of disease.
Rachel has created three gold pendants, each of which is inspired by the Tria Prima. Seen here is the symbol of salt; Salt represented the feminine, the earth and the human body. A powerful preservative (the Egyptians used it in mummification), it was considered a path to immortality. Wear the Salt symbol bracelet to exude effortless femininity and the joy of earth-bound pleasures.
Hand-made in London, these earrings are designed for everyday wear. Made from 18ct yellow gold plated sterling silver.
