“The romanticised Orient, with its deep, opulent colours, decorative culture and vibrant history of storytelling became the perfect narrative for these earrings,” notes Tessa. Particularly inspired by 19th Century opium dens, and the courtesans who frequented them, No Smoke Without Flowers, is a collection of richly-hued pieces, of which this is one.
Hand-crafted in 18ct yellow gold, the Chinatown Earrings feature two delicately hand-carved jasper flowers, a pair of large square-cut amethysts and pave-set, black diamond detailing. Whilst vibrant in colour, their size makes them really easy to wear in the day – they definitely should not be saved solely for evening! In our world, great statement earrings should be able to be worn as readily in the day as at night.
