Emerald Mochica Post Earrings


Extraordinary 22-karat gold fan-shaped earrings that feature Colombian emerald tumbles. The form is inspired by the fan-shaped earrings found in South America and by the elaborate ear ornaments created by the Moche people of Northern Peru. This ancient Andean civilization had an extraordinary culture of craft and metalwork. Their ear ornaments often featured an edge composed of oversized spheres, reimagined here for daily modern wear. The uncut, tumbled emeralds from the Muzo mines feature irregular, organic outlines in vibrant green tones.
