The Eclipse earrings are made from sterling silver plate, cut, hammered, shaped.  Then is applied a 5 microns layer of gold, using a technique called galvanoplasty (or electrolysis).

As early as the Greek and the Roman Antiquity, objects and jewellery in plated silver can be found, preceding the creation of vermeil. Homer’s The Odyssey mentions techniques of folding and hammering.

Non-allergenic by nature, vermeil is precious metal, with time and your care acquire a harmonious patina.

Eclipse

When the Sun plays with the Moon

The Sun has a date with the Moon, but he would rather play hide and seek. Here comes the eclipse, daylight skilfully carved.

The Eclipse collection addresses this phenomenon in a poetic fashion: in a re ned duet of silver and vermeil, a chiselled halo circles a nely hammered Moon.
