The New World

Loren as a student and young archaeologist was captivated by the histories and artifacts of the New World. She specialized in the pre-columbian cultures of Central and South America. When dreaming of this collection she wanted to honor the cultures she had spent years studying. Two jewels showcase this colorful history prior to Spanish colonialism.

The Mochica earrings highlight a prominent pre-columbian shape, the fan. While the historical pieces were never worn as earrings, the upturned edge and large velvety gold surface make for an elegant earring. Golden Akoya pearls adorn the edge, a nod to Moche jewelry designs from 500AD.

The Sipan Tassel earrings celebrate South American gems. Natural matte finish turquoise beads make up a full tassel that sit beneath matte gold caps. Two Muzo Colombian emeralds are the centerpiece of the design.
