This single earring is hand-cast from 14-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.
All our gemstones are natural, and products are handcrafted, therefore there may be a slight variation in color and weight of the product.

This piece is made from recycled gold, which means the gold is reclaimed from previously owned jewellery, which is then melted and newly refined. This way we limit the impact of our production on our planet and its communities.

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.

*As a small business with purpose in an industry that is hazy and foggy when it comes to its transparency, we want to lead by example and are committed to bringing transparency to the jewelry industry. Within our working costs, we include the outflow of all the little things that are happening behind the scenes of Sophie Joanne with our incredibly talented partners when it comes to marketing, design, photoshoots, sampling, etc. In addition, it is important to note that our price breakdown only applies when we sell directly through our website. By selling our jewelry through third parties, an agent fee has to be applied, and our overall proceeds are reduced.
Once your order is complete, we will start creating your piece. Sometimes we have a little stock but mostly each design is made-to-order. If so please allow six to eight weeks for us to create your unique Sophie Joanne piece. We will always contact you to inform you about the timeline. Please be assured as we offer free worldwide insured shipping by FedEx. Almost every piece is made-to-order. Due to the handmade nature of our pieces, we do not offer refunds at this time, but you are welcome to either return pieces for store credit or exchange pieces for an item of equal or lesser value within 7 days of purchase.
