These whimsical earrings celebrate that classic harbinger of spring, the robin, as well as the common belief that having a bird's nest in your home brings good luck. In German tradition, finding a bird's nest in one's Christmas tree meant luck and harmony for the coming year.


Artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal, use thin copper wire to weave these tiny nests, in which stylized sterling silver robins perch contentedly. Dangling from a French hook, they move as you walk, like a branch swaying in the breeze.


Handcrafted in Nepal. 1 1/2"L including the French hook.

      Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

The Golden Horn is the name of an approximately 4-mile-long inlet whose harbor has sheltered boats for thousands of years, through four powerful empires. Its picturesque views have inspired painters, poets, and photographers—Leonardo da Vinci even designed a bridge for it in 1502.

      Silversmithing has a long and respected history on the Indonesian island of Bali, where the word pandai means both "smith" and "clever." Indonesia's early royal families were generous patrons of the arts, and many contemporary silversmiths have inherited hundreds of years of their ancestors' skills. A small group of Balinese artisans collaborate on the tiny granulated designs on these medallion earrings. Each is handcrafted from sterling silver and paired with a smooth onxy cabochon.

      Venetian explorer and trader Marco Polo was one of the first Westerners to travel the Silk Road, bringing European goods to Asia and returning with, among other things, precious gems. Here, the journey is embodied in garnet, peridot, amethyst, and granulated 24-k gold vermeil. Renaissance designer Benvenuto Cellini's work for the Medici family is adapted by Chinese jewelers using faceted gems mined in India—true fusion of three cultures.

      The ancient Etruscans, a civilization that flourished in northern Italy until the first century BC, were known for their sophisticated metalwork.

These 18-karat-gold-vermeil earrings are reproductions of an ancient Etruscan design. Handcrafted in Cortona, in the heart of Tuscany, Italy.

      For 400 years, Ottoman sultans called Istanbul’s magnificent Topkapi Palace home. As many as 4,000 people lived within its walls, which enclosed courtyards, mosques, and even a room called the Eye of the Sultan where the ruler could watch council debates undetected. The palace’s Imperial Treasury is where Ottoman opulence is on full display. These faceted green onyx earrings are inspired by the jewel-encrusted armor, mirrors, and even book covers found there.
