  • The Story

    While many flock to the Oyster for what sits just inside—passing right through its rugged shell as if only an obstacle—designer Janet Mavec chose to highlight the great beauty hidden right in plain sight. Scouring for Oysters only in search for a Pearl is somewhat like forgoing your appetizer, entrée, and sides just to skip straight to dessert; the Pearl may be nice, but it is no hearty meal by itself. The famed mollusk's hardy, calcium-laden shell, on the other hand… now that's a spoonful worth savoring (at least, metaphorically).

    With rich, textural mountains of varied size, shape, and length, and valleys filled with vivid, captivating color that oft goes unnoticed—despite, itself reflecting the full rainbow-gamut, when exposed to light—the shell is as wonderfully complex as it is often discarded. All the better for those who choose to look deeper than surface level.

    This glimmering set of golden shell earrings brings the Oyster's true texture to life, highlighting the peaks and valleys within the contrast of its gilded glow and darkened caverns. Wearing a half-shell on each lobe, stride confidently towards the things that truly matter, not just that which you glean from the surface.
