Boca Bonita Earrings
9ct yellow gold, amethyst and resin leaf earrings
These totally gorgeous, one-of-a-kind earrings couldn’t be more symbolic of what Tessa loves creating: hi-lo jewellery with design flair, heart and soul, and true statement design.
They hail from our Plastic Fantastic collection which appropriates and up-cycles vintage and left-over plastics into timeless, cherished fine jewellery pieces. In the case of the Boca Bonita Earrings, Tessa has cleverly set multi-shape amethysts into clear resin to create the illusion that these gemstones are floating around the ear. A pair of mega amethyst top stones finishes off the look.
Amethysts have been associated with the month of February since the Roman times, and today are commonly agreed to be this month’s birthstone. Found in a spectrum of pinky-violets to darker, bluey-purples, this truly lovely gemstone has always held significant importance in the depiction and representation of power. Fine specimens of the gemstone are featured in the British Crown Jewels and in the collections of Cleopatra and Catherine the Great. In crystal form, it is also said to be helpful in soothing the mind.
