Gray Spinel Earrings Mini Mochica
The Mochica earrings are inspired by Pre-Columbia. The design references a common form found across ancient South American jewelry, the fan shape. The addition of pearls, in a soft golden color, is a reference to the Moche, an ancient culture from Northern Peru. The Moche created incredible turquoise and gold earplugs adorned with oversize gold spheres around the outer edge.
A faceted pear shape spinel marks a long tapered gold tube. Surrounding is a curved flat-shaped fan. 7 Golden Akoya Pearls highlight the edge.
