18 Karat Yellow Gold Fig Cocktail Earrings with Smoky Quartzes by the Artist
These Fig cocktail earrings with the cabochon smoky quartz drops are made of 18 Karat yellow gold. The gems are open for the light to go through and have beautiful cognac colour. The earrings were featured in Vogue UA in 2018.
The idea to create her favourite fruits as a jewellery collection came to the artist from Berlin, Polya Medvedeva, while she was reviewing the fragrances with the sweet and fresh notes of fig. The collection become the mascot for everyone, who adores fragrances or sunny places, where this fruit grows. Together with shining gold and transparent gems the design makes this piece a contemporary jewellery item, while the simplicity of the lines and the big gem still make it look classy and cocktail. The cabochon smoky quartz drops can work differently, to a strict black dress they will add spaciness, and the colourful outfit they may shift to the elegance.
Sugar fig fruit is an equivalent of the bible forbidden apples, the fig leaves are the only clothes for the first humans in the garden of paradise. Besides the fertility, sweet generosity and the richness of life, figs also symbolise the peace and enlightenment and refers to Buddha. The cognac colour of the gems give to these pair also a little grungy attitude.
