Duane Maktima is a revered name in Indian jewelry; both his contemporary innovations and his mentoring are legendary. These earrings are characteristic: elegant, but not necessarily formal, flawless in execution and design, and with unusual materials.
This dramatic but delicate design features rosarita, a brilliant, glossy red glass product, whose color comes from gold, which is a snappy contrast to the deep black jade, the iridescent opal, and bright gold and silver. Pinpoints of multi-colored sparkles glint from the depths of the opal, but the rosarita and black jade are smoothly solid.
The feeling is almost Art Deco; sophisticated and sleek, which fits any era.These would be a classic but dramatic accent to any occasion, from work, to week-ending, to partying.
