Embody the revolutionary spirit with these Liberty Cap dangling earrings!

Liberty caps were a prominent motif in Revolutionary America as iconic symbols of liberty and resistance against arbitrary British rule. These caps, also known as Phrygian caps, were inspired by ancient Roman symbols of independence and were adopted by revolutionaries as a representation of their struggle for freedom. Represented in prints, drawings, and political cartoons perched atop a high “Liberty Pole,” the liberty cap became a powerful emblem of the revolutionary spirit. The Liberty cap represented a rejection of tyranny and the assertion of individual rights and self-governance. 

These earrings feature the Liberty Cap perched atop a dangling pole and includes reproduction 18th-century wool broadcloth, acrylic, .925 sterling silver posts, and a maple veneer backing. 

This item is packaged in a beautiful black gift box with the original period imagery and historical information vetted by a museum curator. The box is perfect for gifting or storage!


Earring is approximately 6 cm high and weighs 2 grams (less than the weight of a penny).
