The beauty of the vivid maple tree is captured in these striking Maple Leaf Earrings. Enchanted by the maroon, yellow and green hues on a leaf that had fallen from a Maple tree in Central Park, Naomi Sarna picked it up, took it to her workshop, sat down at the bench, and fabricated these earrings.
Each earring is set with approximately 400 colored Diamonds, Sapphires, and Garnets. The gemstones, of varying sizes, are set in a pattern of large and small stones to create a sense of movement and to enhance the shading of colors for a painterly effect. The back of the earrings have specially made ajours — an opening in the back that allows light to flow through the gems making the stones shimmer more brightly. Handcrafted in 18-karat yellow Gold with 24-karat yellow Gold stippled veins, the earrings are lightweight and frame the face. To add a touch of drama and further highlight the sparkle of the gems, the Gold is touched with black Rhodium, a metal in the Platinum family. The Maple Leaf Earrings have Naomi Sarna’s signature NSD clips on the back in 18-karat yellow and white Gold sparkling with yellow Diamonds. The Maple Leaf Earrings won Best Use of Color and Second Place Evening Wear from the American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Awards design competition. These one-of-a-kind Maple Leaf Earrings come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Naomi Sarna.
