Story

Rock crystal is one of those mysterious elements that has for centuries intrigued humankind. Whether realized as a crystal ball for gazing into the future or as an ornamental architectural accent, faceted rock crystal holds us in its power. Here the clear quartz has once again performed an about face with its shift from a former life trapped under a sleeve coat as a pair of cufflinks to freedom of expression as a drop earring with rose gold over silver setting (with modern 14k yellow gold ear wires added). Similar in visual size to an opulent 7 carat diamond in each ear.
