The Asterids are a group of flowers that are named for the stars. The name calls to mind the Latin saying, of the same root, “Per aspera ad astra”, or, “Through hardship to the stars”. The Asterids earrings resemble an orchid - one of what Confuscius describes as the noble four plants (along with plum, chrysanthemum, and bamboo). He wrote that they are a plant that can exist in the parlour of nobility, but that also bloom in the wild forests. On describing the way that kindness and goodness between people is passed on, he said, “If you are in the company of good people, it is like entering a room full of orchids. After a while, you become soaked in the fragrance and you don’t even notice it.” Surround yourself with the company of good people, and you too will develop a sweet and enduring scent.
