Marialena Leondaraki, the designer and artist, has been inspired by the simple form of the Spartan shield when designing the earrings.
Handmade from solid sterling silver, the earrings are decorated with a beautiful lapis lazuli stone in an 18K gold bezel setting. Melted 18K gold has been incorporated on their surface with a special technique used by only a few skilled craftsmen. This technique ensures that the gold will not fade by time and that as the silver darkens by age the gold will be further highlighted. When the earrings are polished they will of course return to their original state.
The earrings discreetly carry the metal fineness stamps and the Workshop code ΩΙ34.
