Byzantine Triangle Studs and Ear Jackets

  • Complimentary Home Try On

    Granulation, the ancient technique of enhancing a surface with miniscule gold beads, lends a decorative quality to these bold and dazzling Roman-inspired earrings. Hammered gold and a smattering of diamonds soften the edgy, triangle motif and lend it a luminous finish. Handcrafted in Greece in 18K gold. 0.6 ctw diamonds. 0.8 inches long. These earrings can be worn with the ear jackets or without as a pretty triangle stud.


    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.

    We love the decadent, unrestrained glamour of these fan-shaped gold and diamond earrings, not to mention the exquisite attention to detail. They make a spectacular accompaniment to any evening look, or convert into an everyday look wearing just the triangle studs.
