Shisha Crown Hoop Earrings
Made to order in 4 - 6 weeks.
The Shisha Crown hoops, classic in design, were inspired by the exquisite hand embroidery Alexandra saw on her travels around Rajasthan. The shisha stitch, which originated in 17th century Indian textiles, uses mirrors in the belief that they protect the wearer by reflecting away the evil eye.
The intricate and delicate detail of the gold work is from hand sewing with cotton thread, which is then translated into solid 18kt yellow gold. The 18 black diamonds – ‘diamond’ deriving from the Greek word ‘unconquerable’ – gives a strong, mirrored aesthetic.
