Epirus Drop Earrings with Lapis Lazuli
Complimentary Home Try On
An unforgettable statement from the designer’s Epirus collection, this earring features cobalt blue lapis lazuli in both round and teardrop shapes. The stones are enrobed with 18K gold that is covered in fine granulation. Handcrafted in Greece. Approximately 2 inches in length.
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.
These earrings look like they could be displayed in a museum collection. The contrast of the lapis with the rich yellow 18K gold is mesmerizing.
