Editor’s Notes: The finishing touch to your evening wear, these stunning fresh water pearl and rock crystal chandelier earrings are suspended from 9k gold crescent-shaped discs. Each element of these earrings has been carefully put together balancing size and weight, making them a truly splendid one-of-a-kind set – a showstopper for sure.
Product Information: Believed to embolden its wearer and remove stress, Rock Crystal was given its name by ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus – derived from the Greek ‘crystallos’. The ancient Greeks believed that Gods drank ambrosia and nectar from Crystal goblets, while the Romans used Rock Crystal for making jewellery.
The Romans interestingly prized pearls more than diamonds… Coveted by the nobility ‘gems of the sea’ became Rome’s must-have extravagance in the 1st century B.C.
One of a kind, hand-made by Claire van Holthe. Beautifully presented in hand-crafted black gift boxes with signature Ancienne Ambiance purple ribbons.
