Lapis lazuli & Baroque pearls recall Vermeer's iconic masterpiece
One of the greatest painters of the Dutch Golden Age, Johannes Vermeer is best known for his iconic “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” One characteristic that set his work apart was his bold use of ultramarine, an expensive blue hue that was made from lapis lazuli, a rare semi-precious stone treasured by humans for more than 8,000 years. Ultramarine was the finest and most expensive blue pigment of its day, and Vermeer wasn’t wealthy; nevertheless, he didn’t skimp on his paints.
Inspired by Vermeer’s most famous painting and his vivid use of ultramarine, these Italian-made earrings carry four total carats of lapis lazuli along with two cultured freshwater Baroque pearls. Set in sterling silver, these earrings are unique masterworks that come with their own rich story.
