Post earrings with omega backs, finely crafted in 18k vermeil
Earrings measure approximately 1” in diameter.
Omega clip backs provide a secure fit.
Crafted in 18k vermeil over sterling silver, these stunning
earrings deserve the perfect, secure earring back --
"omega backs" made by Italian craftsmen.
These secure earring 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 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. What is Vermeil Jewelry? Vermeil is more
hypoallergenic and has a thicker layer of gold than “gold
plating,” which is why we use it for our fine jewelry. Also known
as “gilded silver,” vermeil jewelry won’t tarnish.
Edge Earrings are also available in 14k gold, sterling silver
with white rhodium plating for anti-tarnish, and black and gold.
