An alternative to the classic pearl earring - freshwater rice pearls set amongst barnacle-like forms in 14ct yellow gold and white diamonds, on studs. A luxuriously wearable treasure with a sense of having been discovered in the depths of the ocean. The organic shape, intricate barnacle-like forms and twinkling white diamond evoke a sense of wonder around these handcrafted pearl stud earrings. 

Pearls, the birthstone of June, have long been associated with purity, humility and innocence. So it may be said that the meaning of the June birthstone is "sweet simplicity". It is also the gem that married coupled traditionally gift on their 30th wedding anniversary.

The Designer

Since graduating with an MA from London’s Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth Tomlinson continues to investigate the unpredictable and push boundaries of perceived preciousness in her critically acclaimed jewellery collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of UK jewellery designers, and her unique designs and luxuriously wearable adornments are conceived with the notion of being treasured forever.

'I am driven by my passion for the earths treasures; the magic of minutiae, tiny intricacies, small imperfections, and the individual’s search for preciousness. I seek out the unconventional beauty within and this fuels my creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature.

My inspiration is drawn from both the mysteries of historical jewels and the ephemerality of natures life cycles from birth to decay. My work is often a response to my immediate environment, whether a fleeting moment on a train in India or being totally immersed in a single jewel at a local museum. My eyes are wide open to new discoveries and I love to observe and absorb my surroundings.'
