The 360º Double Hoop Earring is part of the designer’s Autumn-Winter Collection, which draws inspiration from both the ancient and the hypermodern.
The pearls and precious stones are not set with the traditional claw technique. Instead, they’re pierced through the gold bands, giving the illusion of being suspended in space.
The illusion of suspension given by the double hoop construction is what makes this earring so original. The piece is made of 18-karat gold and two delicate freshwater pearls, displaying Delfina’s signature logo on the pearl settings.
Although gold and pearl stand as our favorite combination for the day, there are also other beautiful interpretations of the same model, where pearls are replaced by precious aquamarine, amethyst, and peridot, and yellow gold gives place to white and pink gold.
Pearls are one of the jewelry trends for fall 2017, reinvented in large shapes and new settings, as seen on the runways of Chanel, Mulberry, Gucci, Ellery or Oscar de la Renta.
