The color variation in abalone inspired us to create earrings that are reversible, thus embracing the shell’s duality. One side evokes the hot sun on a softly rippling tide pool, and the other a prismatic marbling of pinks and greens. Simply slide the gold ear hook out from the shell’s drilled hole, slip the hook back through on the opposite side, and adorn yourself with a new sensibility.
Natural abalone shell and solid 14k yellow gold hinge and ear hooks; earrings are approximately 2.5”-3” in length. Completed with solid 14k gold backings.
* We love using unrefined abalone shells because they are closest to their natural state. This also means that each pair will be unique in their colors and shape. In matching a pair, we are conscious to maintain a visual continuity in form and size.
The Abalone Fan earrings are currently on a made-to-order basis, and have a production time of 1-2 weeks.
