Featuring a vibrant 14k Solid Gold star, our Stella Maris Earrings pay homage to Our Lady, Star of the Sea.
The referencing of Mary as Stella Maris began in the 5th century. Seafarers invoked Mary as Stella Maris, Star of the Sea, because she was the calmer of storms. But Mary's intercessory power extends well beyond the reach of the sea—she truly calms the storms in the lives of all who follow her Son and implore her help.
As St. Bernard of Clairvaux explained, “If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.”
Wear these earrings as a reminder to call on Mary when the storms of life press upon you, following her as the Star that leads to Christ, the Prince of Peace.
