The glass beads in these earrings are typical colors in Tz‘utujil painting and in women’s embroidered traditional dress.


Handcrafted by Tz‘utujil artisans in Guatemala. Approximately 1 1/4"W x 1 1/8"L.

Amber has a long history in Pomerania, the parts of present-day Germany and Poland that border the Baltic Sea. It can still be found along beaches there, or be scooped out of the ocean as it floats along the waves. Pomeranian brides were often given amber beads as wedding gifts, because they were believed to be protective amulets. These hoop earrings feature authentic amber beads in alternating shades of honey and citrine, paired with sterling silver spacers. Because natural amber is so lightweight, they’re perfect for sensitive ears.

In 1876 the Maharaja Jam Singh painted the city of Jaipur pink—the color of hospitality—in honor of the Prince of Wales’ first visit to Rajastan. The legacy of his gracious gesture lives on in Jaipur, which is known throughout India as the Pink City. For centuries before the prince's visit, Jaipur had been known as a jewelry capital, where artisans and merchants sold stones and worked metal. Many things have changed in India since the days of colonial rule, but Jaipur’s jewelry tradition remains strong. Handmade in one of the city's countless small jewelry shops, these beautiful earrings pair a traditional metal filigree motif with a faceted glass bead.

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.
