Our classic Sapphô metallic lace cuff comes with the poem that inspired the piece:

Fragment 16
By Sappho (625-570 BCE)

Some say the most beautiful thing
Upon the black earth is an army of horsemen;
Others, of infantry, still others, of ships;
But I say it is what one loves.

Translation by Jane McIntosh Snyder.
