Garden Gate Earrings
Gardens have an acute power to make a visitor feel as though they have stepped into a new, magical world. This is especially true for secret gardens, which were often guarded by wrought iron gates or thick brick walls, as beautifully imagined in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s literary masterpiece, The Secret Garden.
Our one-of-a-kind Garden Gate Earrings feature a pair of cushion-cut citrine cabochons, from which hang sets of miniature, verdigris keys – aged and weathered in appearance as if belonging to a long-lost grotto or folly. The verdigris patina’s rustic, green hue also represents plant life in both in colour and in texture. Up close, the verdigris finish takes on the appearance of organic moss growing on garden ornaments or an ancient dry-stone wall.
We think these delicate, jewel-toned earrings are the perfect day-time accessory, both in form and function. Not only are they extremely lightweight, but they go with everything, from other gemstone jewellery to more plain gold pieces. We like to wear ours with scraped back hair and our matching Garden Gate Necklace for maximum impact.
