The prickly pear is a symbol of the most authentic and resilient Sicily. Its plant grows even in arid soils and was a real blessing for farmers, as it was entirely edible, from the fruit-caloric and nutritious-to the flowers and shovels. It was also used in ancient times as food for livestock and fertilizer for new trees. A pair of earrings pays tribute to this strong and wonderful plant, like the Island of which it is characteristic.
