Malaia Wreath EarringsEM1621
Malaia Garnets 5.43cts, Diamonds 1.02cts, 18k gold
A pair of signature earrings with an artistic layout, where the central part is fashioned as an empty pattern. The seven-petal inner outlines of each piece are duplicated by seven peach-color malaia garnets. The garnets from inner and outer sides are circled by diamonds. The earrings are set in white and pink gold.
***It means “rejected” or “outcast” in Swahili. So it was a difficult childhood; despised, surrounded by more well-known and therefore more desirable stones, malaia has been recognized only recently. But fashion changes and this gem’s discrete beauty has endured and is seen today as rare and very precious.***
