Fire, as old as time itself, connecting us with our distant past. These earrings are part of the Smoke and Fire Collection. Flames of blackened silver suspended from fiery rose cut Carnelians. Accented with sparks of solid 22 karat gold granulation, bringing this ancient technique into the modern world. Over 4500 years ago, Sumerian and Egyptian craftsmen were making jewelry set with this beautiful orange gemstone.
The ancient technique of granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one. 22k gold won't dull or tarnish.
Handcrafted ear wires are 18 karat gold and hang 1 1/2 inches below the ear lobe.
