Set in 18K fairmined yellow gold alongside moonstone and diamonds, these earrings are as feminine and enchanting as the goddess of the desert which inspired their creation. 0.37 ctw diamonds. 1.5 inch total drop. Earring width is approximately 0.5 inch at widest point.

    DANA BRONFMAN

    A collector by nature, Dana Bronfman discovered her passion for jewelry throughout her global travels. A bracelet from Istanbul, a Native American heirloom passed on from her grandmother—the pieces she amassed told Bronfman’s own story, and she yearned to craft pieces that would become part of other people’s story.

    Her namesake line, which debuted two years ago, draws inspiration from such influences as Salvador Dali and industrial architecture. Her collection is rife with bold, modern designs that mix metals and negative space in artful and unexpected ways. Classically trained as a metalsmith at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco and as an apprentice in Santa Fe, Bronfman now lives in New York City, where each piece is crafted by hand from reclaimed 18K gold, post-consumer diamonds and ethically sourced gemstones. In 2017, she won Fashion Group International's Rising Star Award for fine jewelry.

     

    We love how each component of these earrings represents a characteristic of the desert: the opals are the sunset, the moonstone is the rising moon, the brushed yellow gold is the blazing daytime sun, and the organic shapes pay homage to the overall desert landscape.
