During a recent trunk show, a client asked how could she change or spruce up her existing diamond X earrings
and make them more dramatic? Choosing a neutral white mother of pearl option, a detachable tear drop shape was created with a coordinating white gold fluted frame, to balance with the scale of the top earring and the braided edge design. Then a small hidden, white gold hook was soldered onto the back side of the X earring, so that the drop could slide on and off the hook. In this way, the earring can now be worn with or without the drop, creating two earrings from one! For the future, the client has the ability to select additional gemstone colors, such as onyx, lapis or malachite, to create more drops from the same design model!
