Ancient Spirits Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Our chic earrings in 14K vermeil recall a striking necklace in The Met collection. A copper-alloy adornment, this beautiful necklace (possibly 14th century) was created in the ancient center of Jenne, in West Africa. The bells on the original necklace are of the type believed capable of being heard by spirits, ringing in both worlds, that of the ancestors and that of the living. For centuries, global cultures have crafted jewelry with protective charms that wearers believe will enhance their personal power.
