Even though the price of gold has dropped from its stratospheric price of a few years ago, most jewellers never dropped their prices to coincide. So it’s rare to see anything made with gold that doesn’t cost, well, more than it should.
These earrings by Me&Ro are a pleasant exception. Set with a teardrop shaped piece of lapis lazuli, they are approximately 1″ in length and 1/4″ at their widest, hanging from 1 1/4″ of recycled 18K gold chain with 18K gold beads. The full earring hangs approximately 2 1/2″ from the ear on 18K gold ear wire. And more pleasantness: they sell for USD$400.
