Crownwork® Butterfly Plique à Jour Enamel Earrings



Available to order

Material: 18k yellow gold, Plique a jour enamel

Stone Type/Carat Weight: Diamond 0.40cts

Dimensions: 1.5″ drop

This is a pair of  18k Yellow Gold crownwork® open butterfly earrings.  Ray’s inspiration for the jewelry in the butterfly series is the mighty Monarch Butterfly, in particular when they are in flight. These earring are fluted on the sides to simulate this.  The focus of these earrings is on the wings, hence the elimination of a body in the design.  The Wings on this pair are enameled using the plique a jour enameling process.

At the center focus of these earrings are pave diamond center stones set in oxidized silver.  Oxidized silver has a beautiful historic feel for jewelry  ( think Austro-Hungarian empire ) and is a wonderful contrast to the gold. It looks rich and strong and as a setting material it’s soft and easy to pave set the stones in deep. When it’s oxidized it is really polished black so the stones pop with rich saturated color and look luxurious.

What is Crownwork®?

Crownwork® is the grid like pattern that features in all Ray Griffiths designs.

Crownwork®’s design roots are in Ray’s early training restoring Vintage European Suites of Jewelry. Aside from the distinctive design element and being the signature of Ray’s work, Crownwork® takes much of the weight from the jewelry, allowing Ray’s designs to retain visual heft yet remain light and easy to wear.
