Jewellery designers have always taken inspiration from nature, and bees hold a particular fascination as they are fundamental to our very existence. These Gold Bee Earrings feature 0.23 ct diamonds set in 18ct gold. They are beautifully crafted, fun, playful and irreverent, and look great worn alone, or layered with other earrings. The bees look best when worn asymmetrically in the ears, giving the impression of flight.
If motifs from the natural world resonate with you, the gold and diamond set dragonfly earrings may also appeal to you.
If you have multiple piercings, pairing these with other earrings to create a curated look. This can include contrasting size, texture and mixing different colours of gold. Experiment to find combinations which resonate with you. The bees also look effective when mixed with different motifs- for example, a bee in one ear and a dragonfly in the other. This creates a look which is linked thematically, but is eye-catching because the earrings deliberately don’t match.
The attention to detail includes the pavé set diamond wings and eyes to the engraved body- which creates a ribbed texture resembling the banding on the body of a bee.
Pavé is a term which describes the setting of the small gemstones- very often diamonds. It is French for “paved”, and the diamonds are set so close together so that very little metal is visible- thereby resembling a pavement. The stones are secured with tiny grains of metal, and the result is a dazzling. It is very popular and takes great skill to do well. In the case of these earrings, the diamonds are so small that the technique is referred to as micro pavè.
