21st Dynasty Ornament Earrings
Complimentary Home Try On
Inspired by a famous necklace from Ancient Egypt’s 21st Dynasty, these beautiful drop earrings from the designer’s Nebu: Sands of Gold Collection feature a line of fresh water pearls strung on a 22K gold wire frame and topped with a melon shaped post at top. Handcrafted in California. 2.5 inch drop.
“I combined the melon motif with fresh water pearl slices, to create a statement earring reminiscent of another era.” — Loren Nicole
Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.
Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.
We love the unique design of this statement earring and the graceful and slight movement created by the pearls strung on its wire frame.
