Mermaids appear in folklore in cultures around the world: Depictions of humans with the tails of fish appear in Mesopotamian artwork, with the first known mermaid stories appearing in Assyria c. 1000 BC. In Chinese mythology dating to the 4th century BC, mermaids weep tears that become pearls. In Scandinavian folklore, a fisherman who performs favors for a mermaid earns the privilege of asking her three questions.
Spiritually, mermaids symbolize the revitalization that water brings, as water is vital to life and growth. These stud drop earrings feature these beautiful mythological aquatic creatures with real opal “bubbles” overhead.
