Duane Maktima Sterling Silver Post Earrings with Quartz and Garnet
With delicate cuts of quartz and garnet these sterling silver post earrings by Duane Maktima are the perfect blend of beauty and intrigue. To soften the sharp angles of these earrings the artist used the translucency of the thinly cut precious stones to add warmth and depth. Secured in saw tooth bezels and framed with subtle texturing on the silver, these earrings have a clasp in the back adding a security to their positioning. The orange quartz is connected with an elegant hook allowing it slight movement.
