The Product: Gold and pearl earrings with Greek eagle
A pair of handmade, Greek, gold and pearl earrings. Gold-plated silver and freshwater pearl drops make for an elegant and striking combination. Together, they form part of the ‘Be Strong’ collection by Athens-based jewellery studio Bijoux Bizarres. Designs from this Greek heritage-inspired range symbolise strength and courage and represent the need to nurture and provide love and support for the underprivileged and unlucky in society. In addition, the eagle is an important symbol in Greek mythology. An emblem of Zeus and the sky Gods, it is thought to represent man’s connection with the divine, as the eagle flies higher than any other bird.
Bijoux Bizarres design and hand-make elegant ‘mythical’ jewellery for real people’. They draw inspiration from Greek mythology, history and traditions by re-imagining heritage patterns as modern forms. Each modular motif in the collection is representative of an entire period or cultural movement within the history of the Mediterranean region. The quirkily named collections derive from mythical Greek personas, stories or ornaments associated with them or states of mind and emotions inspired by them. Extraordinary heroines from Greek mythology whose attributes are often associated with the Mediterranean soul – love, strength, greatness, pride and sometimes contradiction, vanity and drama!
The hand-crafted pieces in this collection are created in limited numbers from an individual model that has been hand-hammered, using the ancient technique of repousée-on-pitch, to make it ‘perfectly imperfect.’ Hence, each subsequent casting is subtly unique.
This collection of jewellery takes you effortlessly from daytime to evening. Classical heritage and elegant design create enduring appeal, that will transcend fashions and trends. We’d team these earrings with a structured white blouse (try Farfetch for a fabulous selection) and tailored trousers. However, they’d look equally elegant teamed with a flowing, full-length dress. Perfect both for city suits and, chic, holiday attire. View our other designs from the Bijoux Bizarres collection here.
These clip earrings are handmade in gold-plated silver embellished with freshwater pearls. They measure approximately 7cm in length. Sweat, perfume, cosmetics & soap can occasionally affect platings. Wash with toothpaste & dry with soft fabric when needed.
