Saying goes that these earrings (Queen Earrings) are a symbol of female fertility, and it is believed that a pair of these have been offered to Queen Maria I, upon her visit to Viana do Castelo city, wich made them known as Queen Earrings.
In its constitution stands a round part, as a fertilized womb, with a smaller and loose circle within, that could mean the child attached to the mother, that is at the same time an independent piece, as the child will leave the womb. In the bottom part of the earrings is an inverted triangle, which is the feminine symbol.
