Emerald has been used in jewellery since ancient civilizations, such as in Egypt, Persia, Arabia, as well as in the Maya, Aztecs, and Incas. The highest prices are achieved by stones of high purity and a deep, bottle-green colour.
The stones for this project have a total weight of 3 ct. and an emerald cut, which sets the rhythm for the entire composition. The proportions of the layered rosette, together with the openwork gallery visible in the lower part of the frame, were inspired by art deco architecture. The upper part with the clasp is flexible, thanks to which the earrings sparkle with every movement. On the other hand, the way I have set the small diamonds is reminiscent of the engraving techniques of old French masters. The whole is made of white 585 gold.
Emerald is one of the most precious gemstones. Its name comes from the Greek word "smaragdos" - a green gem.
