Delicate Aquamarine Ear Studs in White Gold Filigree, From Our Workshop

Dainty stud earrings were a big fashion in the 1900s, because large and flashy earrings were considered unrefined at the time. So small ear studs made of pearls, diamonds and other precious stones were created. However, by their very nature, hardly any pair of stud earrings have survived from the time: For they can only be worn in pairs, and all too often one of the small studs got lost over the years and decades. The present ear studs were created from the idea of offering a matching ear jewellery to pieces of jewellery from the Belle Époque and Art Deco periods. We found the filigree, lace-like settings made of light white gold in a manufactory in Chicago. We then had the faceted aquamarines set in our workshop. This water-blue stone was particularly popular in the first decades of the 20th century, as it complemented the ethereal silk chiffons of the Edwardian period as well as the modernist cool of Art Deco. The result was ear jewellery that combined early 20th century aesthetics with modern convenience - because unlike many vintage stud earrings, ours feature convenient push backs rather than screws or twist pins. Whether worn as a complement to existing jewellery or on their own, the stud earrings can be worn in everyday life as well as in the evening.
