Theodora Earrings in Aquamarine Zircon


These gold hoop earrings are adorned with three freshwater pearls, interspersed with either emerald or aquamarine-toned zircon gems.

Named for Queen Theodora, a Byzantine Ruler, these earrings recall the skill of feminine leadership and conciliation. In the midst of an uprising between two factions known as the greens and the blues, Theodora made a powerful speech that convinced the two sides to reconcile, and put an end to violence in her city. She was one of the first rulers who advocated for the rights of women, and stood up for her own religious beliefs against her husband, Junstinian. After her death Justinian honoured her memory by continuing her legacy of religious tolerance.

Due to 5 years spent living in Istanbul and training under the usta there, Olivia is deeply inspired to keep the traditions of Byzantine design alive while applying her contemporary maximalist design aesthetic. The Theodora Earrings are directly inspired by this idea of supporting Byzantine designs and smithing techniques from the 5-6th Century.

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Each stone is natural, untreated as well as traceable. This means each stone differs in tone and colour. Nickel and lead free. Dimensions: hoop thickness: 1cm, hoop diameter: 2.5cm.

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
