This single earring is hand-cast from 18-karat recycled gold and centered by a lotus-shaped aquamarine with a dewdrop shape in gold dangling below the lobe.
The aquamarine lotus is hand-carved by an expert artisan, using an age-old, stone-carving technique. Aquamarine helps move towards closure, it washes away stress and fear, leaving room for peace and tranquillity instead. The lotus lends its fluid shape to the works of Jean Arp(1886) and Constantin Brancusi(1876).
This flower is associated with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment. The solid golden drop is adorned by a pear-shaped sapphire, the stone of focus and discipline.

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.
