Talk about two gems having a major moment right now: When combined, peridot and pearl make an unexpected power couple the likes of which are irresistible.
Case in point—these earrings from the consistently captivating Assael. What you see: a trio of pearls in each ear, atop and below square-cut peridot in the most bewitching shade of green. The mobile style earrings hypnotize with movement, dangling 2.75″ long with glistening gold lines to connect them.
“This particular green tone of Fijian pearl needed a particularly subdued yellow green within the green spectrum of peridot,” says Peggy Grosz, senior vice president of Assael. “I wanted to emphasize the form of these Modernist mobile earrings, so I needed the color tones not to contrast. The orb shape of the pearls and the square shape of the peridot are more than a nod to the Modernist aspect.
“Additionally, these earrings need to have articulation at every point, without the distraction of components or rings, so the construction was designed to hide all of the connections. They have great movement!”
Peridot and pearl have both recently seen big jumps in popularity—pearl for its awe-inspiring versatility and modern aura of coolness, peridot for its happy shade of green that pairs well with a wide range of colors (especially blue). That Assael put them together in a pair of earrings that are both contemporary and timeless beautifully demonstrates the power of this double whammy. In addition to the double tap of au courant gemstones, the color scheme is perfect for the autumn ahead, a time when earthy tones (including myriad shades of green) see greater popularity in consumers’ fashion choices. Simply put, these earrings are perfect for fall, and much longer than that.
