As always with Aurum jewellery, these are distinctively designed small stud earrings. A silvery white crystal pearl is held by a little textured 'basket' from which a silver circle curves.
The earrings are from the Sand Collection, the newest range of Aurum's jewellery.
The SAND range features Swarovski, 'crystal pearls', which are perfect replicas of real freshwater pearls set in silver: "Reflecting a sense of timelessness and eternity, each pearl is made of a unique crystal core covered with an innovative pearl coating, producing a flawless, silky smooth, rounded surface, contrasting with the sand-like texture of the silver."
As ever innovative and concerned with detail, the earrings are supplied in an Aurum special box*, which is modelled on Icelandic stones which the designer found on a beach in West Iceland. To open the pretty, lightweight, grey 'stone' box squeeze very gently on the short oval edges.
These earrings are also available in oxidised silver and gold plated silver. There is also a very similar design in the form of hook earrings.
* In line with Aurum's concern to reduce the company‘s carbon footprint in all aspects of its production...
"The boxes are made out of "saa Oaoer“ or Mulberry Paper which is the best fibre of the Mulberry tree. Collecting the fibre does not interfere with the ecosystem as not a single tree has to be cut down. Only the shoots are cut and used while the tree continues growing."
