These lovely button earrings showcase a round, cultured freshwater pearl ringed with sterling silver twisted into a rope motif. Inspired by Nordic mythology, Rosa Tomatis of Peru designs the earrings to represent strength and beauty combined, with the sterling silver oxidized to a rich, dark color, further highlighting the soft, luminous cream color of the cultured pearl.
