Brutalist Malachite and Diamond Dangle Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
Emerging in the mid-20th century, Brutalism is described as an architectural style characterized by a deliberate plainness, crudity, and transparency that can often be interpreted as austere and menacing. In the hands of an imaginative jeweler, that aesthetic takes on fascinating forms. These ravishing--and riveting--1960s earrings pop with gorgeous gold-capped malachite drops, dangling in diamond-dotted openwork frames that intrigue with their arresting asymmetry. Altogether cool, they connect to cabochon malachites orbited by small, bright gold columns evocative of sea anemones. Yeah, they're groovy. In 14K gold.
