Italian Bee Lire Coin Charm Earrings
*Shipping and Handling Included
The Bee Lire is a very special lire coin and one of the most sought after that has been created and I was thrilled that we could get it for you! This coin was introduced in 1953, a few years after the end of the World War 2 to instill hope in the Italian population and was only produced for a few periods after. I love the simple setting that frames the bee lire earrings. These are genuine Lire and were legal tender in Italy before they went to the Euro. It is literally carrying a piece of Italy with you and I often wonder what stories it would have if it could talk. The symbolism of the bee and the olive branch, the reason for it's introduction, the scarcity and the beauty are only a few of the many reasons it is a treasure. I love the way the bee lire coin is designed into these Charms that drop from a hoop earrings. They are so fresh looking, I know you will love them.
The bee is a symbol for diligence, hard work, and productivity.
The olive branch, symbol of the agriculture that is so important to the Italian economy.
