Locus Solus Hoops – Lapis Lazuli & Gold Vermeil by Independent Jeweller Estelle Deve

Subtly honouring Gae Aulenti’s range of garden furniture which reimagined the conventional style of the Rationalism era, our Locus Solus earrings play on the youthfulness and experimentation of her 1964 designs. The earrings take on an asymmetrical arc shape, imprinted with delicate ridges, that gently envelops the ear lobe as it slightly descends in size. The larger gradient of the Locus Solus earrings is formed of coloured semi- precious stones, with the smaller half of the earring flowing smoothly into solid metal. This contrast captures the eccentric fusion of colour and metal, and its ability to provide a means of expression that differs from the paradigms of physical space, a principle that Aulenti championed throughout her career.

The Locus Solus hoops are thoughtfully crafted in 18k gold vermeil and feature a graduating arc of lapis lazuli. 6mm thick at their widest point, these gradient earrings measure 18mm from their outer to 15mm at their inner diameters, with a 1mm silver edge at the stones incision. Each weighs 3.9 grams.

Key Features:

  • Inspiration. Drawing from the youthfulness and experimentation of Gae Aulenti's designs, the earrings feature an asymmetrical arc shape with delicate ridges.
  • Design. The larger gradient is adorned with semi-precious lapis lazuli stones, while the smaller half transitions smoothly into solid 18k gold vermeil, showcasing a harmonious blend of colour and metal.
  • Craftsmanship. Thoughtfully crafted, these hoops measure 18mm from their outer to 15mm at their inner diameters, with a 6mm thickness at the widest point, each weighing 3.9 grams.
  • Material. Made with 18k gold vermeil and featuring a graduating arc of lapis lazuli, the earrings exude elegance and quality.
  • Natural Gemstones. Please note that all stones are natural gemstones, which means variations in colour and pattern are to be expected, adding to the uniqueness of each piece.
  • Hygiene. Due to hygiene reasons, returns on earrings are not accepted, ensuring the utmost care and consideration for all customers.

Please note, all stones are natural gemstones and will present variations in colour and pattern. Please note that we are unable to accept any returns on earrings due to hygiene reasons.
