You will notice a lot of this color in the collection. I was very interested in setting some sugilites this season. This pair of ear clips has a decidedly ancient look. The beautifully- patterned free-form sugilites fit the look that I had in mind. The disk top and interesting articulation in the gold work combined with the shape of the sugilites make this happen. The natural inclination would have been to use a faceted stone or diamond, but instead the Akoya pearls create a unique cabochon look. The use of the hand-fabricated 18K yellow gold creates a richness as only yellow gold can do. In person, the details will enchant you, especially when you take these ear clips off and admire their unique beauty.
