Eternal Orchid Earrings
18CT WHITE GOLD, TSAVORITES, WHITE DIAMONDS, ENAMEL
Shaun Leane’s Eternal Orchid Earrings parallel the strength and fragility found in nature with a tentative feeling of the human experience. Exotic orchid flowers of haunting beauty are masterfully hand-worked using 18 carat white gold, crafted through meticulous repoussé and chasing work which imbues the design with an organic touch.
Designed to compliment rather than overpower the contours of the face, the Eternal Orchid Earrings appear as if growing around the ear of the wearer. At eight carat, these are bejewelled statement pieces.
A fine micro-pavé setting transitions from 1.08 carat of white diamonds through to an astonishing 2.05 carat vivid green tsavorite stems, up to a magnificent single 0.87 carat tsavorite “in bloom”. Hand-painted kilned enamel petals echo those found on Art Nouveau masterpieces, staying in line with Leane’s continued fascination with historical design.
His Eternal Orchid Earrings evoke a similar romantic sensibility; through exploration of new materials and techniques, Leane feeds our imagination with hidden details, to an opulence that speaks of now.
