La Traviata porcelain jewelry series was originally inspired by the opera with the same name by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. Traces of gold and silver seen on the pieces are an allegory to the collection name as which was La Traviata, meaning: the fallen woman. The traces of gold and silver are memories transferred onto porcelain. The gold and silver symbolize wealth and the porcelain symbolizes fragility, as the jewelry is created from the weakness of 'the fallen woman'.
La Traviata earrings are handmade with an original technique using colored porcelain and carat gold plated sterling silver backs which are safe for the ears. They are easy to clean with warm water and soap. Porcelain is one of the most durable, sustainable and sophisticated materials used in contemporary jewelry.
These earrings in dark green and gold measure Ø 2 cm.
