Byzantine Gems Drop Earrings, Lapis from The Met Museum


Adorn yourself with our pretty drop earrings showcasing 18K gold vermeil with rich blue lapis-a winning combination for day or evening wear. Our singular pair was made in the USA using ethically sourced materials. We were inspired to create this flower-like design by a 6th-7th century Byzantine gold necklace in The Met collection ornamented with cross-shaped pendants of sapphire, pearl, and quartz. Displaying the wealthy Byzantines’ love of color and shine, the original necklace celebrates the artistry of ancient goldsmiths.
