Topkapi Palace in Istanbul is a vast and unimaginably lavish complex that was home to the Ottoman Sultans for most of their six-century reign. Within its walls were mosques, courtyards, kitchens, banks, and the famous 100-room harem where the sultan’s mother, wives, and consorts lived.
These gleaming earrings are inspired by the lattice windows and gates of the Topkapi Palace. The lace-like pattern is hand-cut from thin sterling silver, which is then plated in 22-karat gold. A faceted, dark purple iolite gem finishes the design.
