Croissance Illimitée Earrings

Sterling Silver

£310

Description

Inspired by the evolutionary spiral of the nautilus shell, in 1931 Le Corbusier proposed that museum architecture imitate the organic growth present in the natural world. In his vision, museums could begin minimal, successively expanding in a spiral order over time, room by room, growing with and reflecting better their contemporary societies. In response to this radical proposal of forward-thinking, the gradients of the Croissance Illimitée earrings, gracefully wrap around the earlobe; a tribute to uninhibited growth through experience.

The Croissance Illimitée earrings are thoughtfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver 925 or 18k gold vermeil. A mirror image of the other, each earring in this pair measures 28mm across, with an inside diameter of 15mm. Each weighs 6.5g and are 3mm thick.

All of the materials that we use in our jewellery are ethically and sustainably sourced using Fair Mined certified gold and predominantly recycled silver. 
The Croissance Illimitée earrings are cast and assembled in Thailand by a community of artisans from our partner factory, Boma. The gold vermeil option is finished in the UK by our plating specialist, D&M. Read more about the story behind our pieces and their makers here.
