Contemporary Flexible Drop Earrings


Available as bespoke creations in a variety of colored gemstones, or set with classic diamonds, the “Hillary” ear pendants are a contemporary take on the glamorous chandelier form, reimagined as playful cascades of sparkling stones joined by delicate trace link chain.

These inspired little designs, featuring multiple gemstone possibilities, enhance the jewelry box with their unique beauty and versatility.

The delicate proportions of these highly-flexible contemporary gold and brilliant-cut diamond earrings reflect the loveliness of spring’s first blooms. A trinity of gold petals set with diamonds tops a chain drop festooned with bezel-set diamonds. A fluid cascade of beauty that dazzles with movement and light.

The Hillary pendant earrings are modeled on an elegant vintage pair that the gallery’s Creative Director Hillary Macklowe received as a gift from her husband Ben. Delighted by the compliments they inspired every time she wore them, Hillary decided to design a streamlined contemporary form with all the easy beauty of the originals. This design is a modern miniature interpretation of the popular Edwardian festoon motif, which is composed of floral elements connected by lengths of chain.
