Set with a pinkish white Swarovski crystal, hand engraved with an intaglio depiction of mythological figure Icarus.
In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, the creator of the Labyrinth. Icarus and Daedalus attempt to escape from the island of Crete by means of wings that Daedalus constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus ignores his father instructions not to fly too close to the sun, causing the wax in his wings to melt. He tumbles out of the sky, falls into the sea, and drowns. The myth gave rise to the idiom "don't fly too close to the sun”
