Aurelia Gold and Amazonite Earrings
Complimentary Home Try On
Intricate scrollwork offsets sea foam green gemstones in these stunning 18K gold and amazonite drops from the designer's Aurelia collection. Inspired by an ancient technique known as “open style” which originated during the 3rd century A.D., the earrings herald the past while remaining thoroughly contemporary. Handcrafted in Greece. Approximately 3½“ long. This latest version comes with a post backing.
Contemporary designs meet ancient inspiration in the rich yellow gold of Lalaounis. Founded by fourth-generation jeweler Ilias Lalaounis in the 1960s, the company revived ancient Greek goldsmithing techniques, creating modern jewelry inspired by the country's rich archeological heritage. Following in the footsteps of their father, today the four Lalaounis sisters – Aikaterini, Demetra, Maria and Ioanna – are transforming five generations of tradition into wearable jewelry for modern women. Worn by style icons from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor yesterday to Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron today, the company’s designs are also exhibited in the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum in Athens.
An heirloom in the making, these ancient-inspired earrings make us feel like a modern-day Cleopatra. We love the idea of passing them down for generations to come.
