There’s nothing quite like experiencing a piece of jewellery in real life: holding it, feeling its grooves, materiality, and of course trying it on. The B.V.D.V. Showroom in Amsterdam is always open by appointment, with an expert team ready to help with fitting, styling, and be-spoke requests. If you can’t make it to the studio, we also offer a try-at-home service, and expert advice delivered virtually.
These intricately detailed, asymmetric earrings – one to represent a tree’s branches and the other its roots - are symbolic of the destruction of nature but also its rebirth. The earrings are designed in 18k yellow gold, lent a smoky look with black diamond embellishment. Flames burning the trees are represented by orange and yellow sapphires, while warm-toned smoky quartz sits at the roots. But white diamonds at the tree’s roots and green tsavorites dotted along its branches nod to renewal and optimism, in this beautiful ode to nature.
