Lady Godiva, $18.90
Originally uploaded by Beads of Lav.

With a drop of 7.5cm, this 3.5cm x 3.5cm hoop earring has the US imported gold Lady Godiva charms as the centrepiece, amidst a mix of beautiful blue and green acrylic crystals, czech glass beads, pink swaroski crystals, silver and gold chains etc.

Now, who is Lady Godiva ? According to Wikipedia, she was an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who rode naked through the streets of Coventry in England to gain a remission of the oppressive toll imposed by her husband on his tenants. The name "peeping Tom" for a voyeur comes from later versions of this legend in which a person named Tom watched her ride and was struck blind. Interesting?
