This designer is known for incorporating traditional materials in new and unique ways that continually expand the limits of fine jewelry thanks to their creative artistry.
Carved Tahitian Pearls
At the bottom of each earring in this set is a black Tahitian pearl that’s carved in an organic pattern that resembles overlapping leaves. The intricate detail of the carving is highlighted by the way the light reflects off of the rich, dark surface of the pearls, and the leaves all come together at a point at the very bottom of each piece.
Tahitian pearls are generally larger than other types pearls, and that, combined with their striking color, makes them a popular choice for use in fine jewelry like this. They are especially good when carving is involved, as they provide ample surface area to include intricate detailing, as seen in this set. Earrings
Earring Design and Diamond Accents
On the top of each pearl, a white gold cup with four arms connects the two sections of each piece. These are detailed to look like the bases of flowers, and this adds to the overall organic look of the design. As the cups narrow on their way up to the bale, they make space for a small round diamond to be bezel set on each stem.
These two diamonds together total 0.04 carats, and their brilliant white sparkle provides just the right counterpoint to the dark pearls below. Despite their small size, they stand out, helping to add balance and a hint of glamorous flair to the design.
