Cannonball Single Opening Earring with Hidden Pearl
A shiny cannonball orb can be worn closed or opened to reveal a luminous freshwater pearl glowing within. Inspired by antique coach-covers where precious gemstones were hidden for the journey and revealed for the party, this is a highly engineered design which clicks to close.
Handcrafted from Sterling Silver and 22ct Gold Plate, this statement single earring is a part of a curious new collaboration between Alex Monroe and writer and cultural observer Raven Smith.
