Shell Single Earring
In Botticelli’s masterpiece ‘The Birth Of Venus’, the goddess of love is portrayed standing on a large scallop shell. It’s one of the many reasons this ancient motif is symbolic of fertility and femininity. Shells, generally, hold a unique fascination for many people. A mystery. An other-worldliness. As the type of people who collect and obsess over beautiful shells, this design was lovingly created to encapsulate thousands of years of captivation.
In the making:
Our earrings come in three options, depending on the design – short drop, long drop and hoop. The short drop is 15mm long from top to bottom and the Long Drop is 74mm. They’re perfect miniatures of some of our classic designs, drawn by hand and cut with a big old laser. They’re made of solid either 925 Sterling Silver of 375 9 carat Yellow Gold, finished and polished by hand. Not all pendants are available as charms, as the detail is too fine to cut (even with a snazzy laser).
We sell our earrings as singles, so that you can mix and match your designs and length of drop to suit your style. Add two to your cart if you want to stick to the same design, or check out our collections if you want to twist and mix it up.
