The Dog Day cicada (the namesake of this pair of earrings) is called such because they appear during the dog days of summer. It is called "dog days" because it happens to coincide when the biggest star in the Canis Major constellation (meaning "big dog" in Latin) rises alongside the sun. It is said that the heat from the two stars combined is what makes these the hottest days of the year.

It is during this time that these cicadas rise from the ground and onto the trees all over North America. In some regions, summer has not officially begun until you can hear the cicadas sing. They are known for their green and brown bodies - hence the colors of these earrings. The copper portion of the wings also shift to gold depending on the lighting. The earrings also feature suns to evoke the feeling of a summer's day.

Since cicadas represent cycles, may their chorus call upon you to bask in the sun and enjoy or reminisce on the summer season of your life.
