The Doctor’s Earring: Original Designer Alex Monroe Announces Official Replicas
V good pictures if you want a better look.

Re. imagery, then I think the earring is the most meta thing on the show! <3

ETA: So, I made an icon of the earring... Because poetry. The line is the final line from T.S.Eliot's Little Gidding. The poem basically IS Twice Upon a Time, but the ending is all Thirteen. <3

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree

Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always--
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.
