Overview

Arabesque designs—repeating geometric patterns of flowers and animals—are often found in Middle Eastern art and architecture. In Islamic art, these never-ending patterns symbolize a spirituality that extends beyond the visible world. These 24-karat gold-vermeil earrings pair intricate arabesque design with a timeless style. Gold vermeil is a technique first used in 18th-century France for gold-plating sterling silver.
