The Irene stud earrings take the shape of a Byzantine noble, wreathed their edges by freshwater pearl, agate and jade. From short chains, three amethysts are suspended on each.
Irene Doukaina was a Byzantine Empress of the 12th Century. Irene’s daughter wrote of her mother: "She stood upright like some young sapling [...] Her face shone with the soft light of the moon; There were rose blossoms on her cheeks, visible a long way off. Her light-blue eyes were both gay and stern: their charm and beauty attracted, but the fear they caused so dazzled the bystander that he could neither look nor turn away."
