Description

Our chic drop earrings recall rare ancient beads in The Met collection, which were found in the lavish graves at the fabled Mesopotamian site of Ur (ca. 2600–2500 B.C.). The pair are crafted in 24K gold plate with hand-painted lacquer.

The blue lapis lazuli and gold of the originals provide rich contrasting colors—and may have had amuletic properties. The lapis would have originated in Afghanistan and the gold would have traveled from Iran, Anatolia, or even faraway Egypt.
