Description

Our stylish button earrings recall a striking ear ornament (3rd–7th century) made by the Moche, a people that flourished on Peru's north coast from A.D. 200-850, centuries before the rise of the Inca. Moche artists excelled at micro-mosaics, shaping tiny pieces of highly valued materials such as shell or turquoise into tesserae. In the original ear ornament in The Met collection, turquoise mosaics decorate circles arranged around a spear-carrying being.

Designed and produced in Colombia by Omar Hurtado and Lina Velasquez. Mr. Hurtado's jewelry reproductions are endorsed by the Gold Museum in Bogotá, Colombia, and are also featured at the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum in San José, Costa Rica.
