I had the pleasure of helping a friend select a pair of earrings to wear to the Grammy Awards on February 10, 2013. I love projects like this. After looking at various options, she selected this pair of Shamila Jiwa carved rock crystal quartz earrings in 18kt gold. (Does that name sound familiar? I profiled Shamila in 2012 after she won a prestigious design award.)
The earrings had presence and sparkle, and were the perfect complement to her black lace Dolce & Gabbana gown. Here’s a close-up of the intricate carving and faceting that are responsible for their brilliance.
The designer Shamila, a globe-trotting “gem sleuth”, has a knack for selecting gems that are truly stunning. It’s nice to know that an independent designer’s earrings made it to the Grammys!
