CASTOR & POLLUX

CASTOR & POLLUX

Castor and Pollux (also known as the Dioscuri) were the twin sons of Leda, the queen of Sparta. They lost their lives in a battle but Zeus granted them a qualified immortality, allowing them to alternate days between the Underworld and the heavens. As a result, the Dioscuri came to be regarded as gods throughout Greece. As gods, they were believed to be the patrons of sailors, to whom they appeared as St. Elmo’s fire—a glowing electric field that commonly occurs during thunderstorms. This cuff set is a tribute to Castor and Pollux, showcasing a silhouette of waves building out at sea with the stark black and white representing the underworld and the heavens.
