“Smoldering” earrings from artist Eve J. Alfillé’s newest jewelry design series, “Homage to Gustav Klimt” are one of Diane Alfillé’s favorite pieces to make their debut in this collection that was unveiled at the opening party October 19th (the 26th anniversary of the Gallery).
Eve tells us that they derive their power from the ingenious balance of cool & hot.
Hot are the sinuous 22 karat gold Klimt inspired tops with their delicate platinum edging: Female Curves alert! The cool are the amazing rose-cut yellow diamond slices like windows on the world of possibilities. Edged in the tiniest champagne diamonds, they soon give way to the playfulness of diamond briolettes. One is hot (orange) one is cool (grey-green). And depending on you, cool or hot is how you will look wearing these earrings, just add attitude! These will be your signature earrings, no one else will have them!
The yellow diamond slices are 1.40 carats together, with 40 champagne diamonds totaling 0.20 carats, pavé-set in oxidized sterling silver, 2 fancy colored diamond briolettes which together weigh 0.90 carats are suspended from platinum filaments at the bottom of the earrings. The sensual curvy 18 karat gold & platinum tops each hold a single gemstone, one is a tiny Montana river sapphire of grey-green, and the other has a tiny, sizzling orange mandarin garnet. They truly are smoldering!
