Crafted in 14K gold, these stunning earrings deserve beautiful and secure earring backs -- "omega backs" made by Italian craftsmen.

Omega backs are an evolution of the popular earclips of the 1940s and 50s and take their name from their uncanny resemblance to the Greek letter omega – Ω. The ends of the looped finding attach to the earring via a hinge. When closed over the post the rounded end of the omega back holds to the ear via pressure for a secure fit.

The Edge collection of rings, earrings and bracelets was inspired by Wabi sabi, an ancient aesthetic philosophy rooted in Zen Buddhism. One definition of Wabi-sabi is the view or thought of finding beauty in every aspect of imperfection in nature. On holiday in the Maldives, my hotel room had an interesting room divider made from woven twigs and branches. It was asymmetrical yet perfectly balanced with a structure that was both strong structure and free flowing. This was the goal for the Edge collection: to embrace the philosophy of “beauty in imperfection” with purposeful alterations in symmetry and metal texture while achieving perfect balance.
Edge Earrings are available in several sizes in 18k vermeil over sterling silver, sterling silver with white rhodium plating for anti-tarnish, and black and gold.
