    From the designers Permanent Collection, these elegant stud earrings feature beautifully stacked 22K gold rosettes each with rich granulation detail. Handcrafted in California. 

    “The rosette is an iconic ancient Greek motif, that was used decoratively on most of the jewelry that was created. The rosettes are made using the ancient art of granulation, in which wires and granules are fused to the surface. Each flower is lightly repoussed to raise the petals.” — Loren Nicole 

     


     

    Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.

    Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.

     

    We love the unique yet refined look of these intricate and beautiful rosette stud earrings. Just like a piece of fine art, these earring will be treasured for a lifetime.
