Celestial Collection

I have always been in awe of the skies so it seems fitting that our first collection takes after the heavenly bodies. There are 12 pieces in the Celestial Collection and each piece is specifically designated popular names in astronomy.

Clockwise from left to right: Perseid (gold), Astra (silver), Ursa Major, Europa
Clockwise from left to right: Astrud, Perseid (silver), Selene, Astra (gold)
Clockwise from left to right: Maya (blue), Valentina, Maya (pink), Cassiopeia

ASTRA • comes in gold and silver • Php199/ pair
Per aspera ad astra is a popular Latin phrase meaning "through hardship to the stars". I imagine the irregular geometic plate, pretty in its imperfect shape, as having gone through a lot and emerging triumphant.

ASTRUD • comes in silver • Php149/ pair
Astrud is a play on the name Astrid, also derived from Astra.

CASSIOPEIA • comes in gold • Php149/ pair
Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky, named after the vain queen Cassiopeia in Greek mythology, who boasted about her unrivaled beauty. Cassiopeia was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations today.

EUROPA • comes in gold • Php149/ pair
Beneath the icy surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa is perhaps the most promising place to look for present-day environments suitable for life. It is named after a woman abducted by the god Zeus in Greek mythology.

MAYA • comes in blue, pink, and yellow • Php149/ set
Mayans are known to be one of the earliest astronomers. They believed that the will and actions of the gods could be read in the stars, moon, and planets, so they dedicated time to doing so, and many of their most important buildings were built with astronomy in mind. The sun, moon, and planets, Venus, in particular, were studied by the Maya.

PERSEID • comes in gold and silver• Php149/ pair
The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle. The meteors are called the Perseids because the point from which they appear to hail lies in the constellation Perseus. 

URSA MAJOR • comes in gold • Php129/ pair
Ursa Major is a constellation in the northern sky, whose associated mythology likely dates back into prehistory. Its Latin name means "greater she-bear", standing as a reference to and in direct contrast with nearby Ursa Minor, the lesser bear.

VALENTINA • comes in gold • Php199/ pair
This piece is named after Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman to go into space. In 1963, she spent almost three days in space and orbited Earth 48 times in her space capsule, Vostok 6.
