Golden Horn Ruby Quartz Earrings

Available, ready to ship.


Less than half a mile separates Europe from Asia at the narrowest point of Turkey’s Bosphorus strait. 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.

These elegant and natural earrings are inspired by the colors of the sunset over the Golden Horn, and the style is adapted from Roman-era designs. Faceted ruby quartz and labradorite are framed in 22-k gold, with a tiny crystal to catch the light.


Handcrafted in Istanbul, Turkey. Approximately 2"L.
