If plain and simple is your thing, these earrings may suit. By Alighieri, they are gold plate over brass (presumably, since it’s not stated in the description).
More about the designer: When reading French and Italian at Oxford University, Alighieri founder Rosh Mahtani studied Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’ – the poem influences her jewelry in such a beautiful and striking way. These gold-plated earrings have been crafted in London using a lost-wax casting method – the metal is poured into a pre-made mold to create its textured appearance, making every pair unique.
These are available from Net-A-Porter for £155.
