Jewel of the day: Valentine Rouge Letta Oxidized Silver Earrings

I was out for a walk and wandered into a local store, where I encountered charming pieces by Valentine Rouge, a Toronto-based designer. I love this kind of serendipitous find. I’d never heard of the brand but this won’t be my only piece. These earrings feature crystal quartz set in oxidized silver. They are fairly light weight, making them more comfortable and easier to wear.

The company notes, “The designer revives the elegance and grace of Italy’s golden Renaissance and Baroque eras into a modern feminine vibe. Each jewelry piece is rendered from original molds and stampings from eras past, electroplated with 18k gold; and meticulously hand set with precious stones; Austrian Crystal; fresh water pearls; and Venetian glass, to create an exquisite collection of modern heirloom jewelry.”

These sell for Cdn$140.
