    Did you know that swirls complement every face shape? Q spent weeks experimenting with the correct weight and shape to make sure these swirls would be perfectly balanced, requiring no earnut or pushback to keep the earring in place. The result? Perfect 14k gold hoops.

    The mathematical equation based on the Fibonacci sequence (kind of cool, right?) found in nature, art and design is called the Golden Ratio. Q always finds inspiration when traveling, and beaches with crystal clear water have incredible sea shells. Swirls, or spirals, are one of the repeating patterns found in nature. For example, the Nautilus, a meticulous craftsman, designs its shell in a shape called an equiangular spiral.

    Spirals and self-similar curves have long been appreciated for their charm and beauty, but no one can really explain why they are echoed so clearly in art and nature. From architecture to jewelry to cave paintings, this spiral has pleased humans throughout the ages -- and Q's swirl hoops are a perfect example of that.

These beautiful swirl earrings are available in 3 sizes, in rhodium-plated sterling silver, 18k vermeil and 14k gold.

Perfect for day or night, you'll probably want a pair in both silver and gold!
