This ethereal single earring is hand-casted from 14-karat recycled gold. The diamond-encrusted drop falls from a striking hand-carved carnation in black onyx.
The carnation is hand-carved by an expert artisan, using an age-old, stone-carving technique. Black onyx is a soothing stone, taking on its energy lets you breathe easier, while the diamonds encourage you to see, seek, and radiate the light within yourself.
This poetical design is inspired by the works of Claude LaLanne(1924), who is known for her forms of decorative flora and fauna, drawing from Surrealism and Art Nouveau.

Above all else, we value our community most, our customers, the craftsmen that generously lend us their skill, and everyone else who is involved in this journey. We build lasting relationships, we act with kindness and respect, and value quality of life. All the craftsmen and artisans we work with are compensated fairly.
With every piece we sell we openly share the breakdown of these compensations. We only work with people who align with our values of sourcing and crafting and make sure these ethics are lived throughout our supply chain.
Where possible we produce locally, but we also highly value our craftsmen who work from a distance. They possess skills that are rare to find and are often tied to remote communities. We take pride in that our collaborations have a direct positive impact on them and their community.
We want to share with you the full story of how our pieces came to life, who put their love in them and how they were compensated. We want you to understand why a piece costs what it costs, therefore we share the full breakdown of the retail price with every item.
