As I wrote about in "In Bed With the Tudors," sixteenth century women put their faith in charms and rituals when it came to attracting husbands and conceiving children. This earring is a tribute to that: a green bead for bitter herbs, a blue drop for dew collected in the moonlight, symbolised by a pearl, and a silver pine cone, which was placed under the pillow.
