Hand-carved in 18K matte yellow gold, these earrings incorporate one of the designer’s favorite motifs, a rose’s calyx. Each calyx features a diamond center and a sparkling rutliated quartz drop. Calyx measures 5/8”. Quartz drop measures ¾”.
“I love looking out into my rose garden, no matter what time of year, and seeing what remains. The calyx is all that remain when the petals have gone.” - Diane Dorsey
A formally trained artist who holds degrees in architecture, painting and education, Diane Dorsey discovered her true passion for jewelry design after relocating from Ohio to Santa Fe, where she trained with master silversmiths and goldsmiths. Today, she lives with her jazz musician husband, in Los Olivos, California, where she hand-carves each of her nature-inspired designs.
Diane carves every millimeter of her pieces by hand. These dramatic drops combine two unique elements of the natural world: the rose’s calyx and the naturally striated rutilated quartz.
