White Rhodium Edge Post Earrings - Large, Omega Clip

These sterling silver textured hoop earrings with Omega backs will quickly become your favorite escape from the ordinary. Bold enough to stand alone, they also pair well with other designs from the Metal Elements collections.

  • Post earrings with omega backs, finely crafted in white rhodium over sterling silver.
  • Earrings measure approximately 1.375” (35mm) in diameter.
  • Omega clip backs for a secure fit.

Crafted in sterling silver with rhodium plating for anti-tarnish, these stunning earrings deserve the perfect, 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. It is about the aesthetic of things in existence, that are “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.”
This is what I believe I achieved with the Edge collection: embracing the Wabi sabi philosophy of “beauty in imperfection” with purposeful alterations in symmetry and metal texture while achieving perfect balance.
Silver is a metal of emotions, and of loving as well as healing, used to bring patience and perseverance to the wearer. Edge Earrings are also available in 14k gold, sterling silver with 18k vermeil, and black and gold.
