Details

Riffing off of conventional designs, Pablo Roquel proudly designs this pair of stud earrings, featuring innovative techniques. Inspired by his love for coffee, the artisan crafts the petite earrings to feature ovals of light green Guatemalan jade. Wavy textures etched across their surfaces mimic the cloven appearance of the coffee bean. Coffee and jade were of great importance to the ancient Maya, each used for religious rituals and marking social status.

I love these earrings. The only thing that I would change is the post, it is loose in one of them and I think the material for the post should be a bit stronger, other than that they are perfect

Beautiful earrings that are a good size to be noticed, but not overwhelming or heavy. Some of my favorite go-tos as they match everything,
