Unapologetic about their natural beauty.
Simply chic. Brass, gold, and raw emerald join forces in this modern yet timeless set of stud earrings.
OUR FOUNDER’S NOTES
These earrings are an elegant representation of the cornucopia of resources native to South America, a region with a rich heritage of emerald mines and using emeralds in their raw form in metallurgical works.
I like to wear these to the office and on the weekends, personalizing them to my style on any given day. I wanted to create things that tell a story of art and elegance. My favorite design refrain is ‘classic but with unexpected boldness.’ These earrings are just that, classic with a twist.

The emeralds are cut from a very large raw emerald gem rock, which results in the variability in size, color, and shape between each individual earring. Because a raw emerald rock is the convergence of beryllium, chromium, and vanadium, each cut stone is going to be a bit different than another, even though they're cut from the same rock. We love that this adds to each pair's uniqueness.
