Black and 14k Gold Edge Post Earrings - Medium, Omega Clip
Light and breezy, these hoop earrings will quickly become your
favorite escape from the ordinary. Bold enough to stand alone,
they also pair well with other designs from the Edge Metal and
Post earrings with omega backs, finely crafted in black
rhodium over sterling silver and 14k gold.
Earrings measure approximately 1” in diameter.
Omega clip backs provide a secure fit.
These finely crafted Black and Gold Edge Earrings combine the
vibrancy of 14k gold with the deep tones of Black Rhodium.
Experiencing colors, textures and shapes in nature, and cities
small and large, has always inspired my designs, as have
philosophies like Wabi Sabi. What is Wabi Sabi?
Wabi sabi, an ancient aesthetic philosophy rooted in Zen
Buddhism, inspired the Edge earrings, rings and bracelets. 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 is what I believe
I achieved with the Edge collection: embracing the philosophy
of “beauty in imperfection” with purposeful alterations in
symmetry and metal texture while achieving perfect balance.
Wabi Sabi. Why Omega Backs? Stunning earrings deserve a
secure earring back like our 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.
Edge Earrings are also available in 14k gold, 18k vermeil over
sterling silver, and sterling silver with white rhodium plating
