Tulip and Slug Ear Cuff

Tulip and Slug Ear Cuff

Size guide

This intriguing piece can act as three separate designs – the slug alone is an ear climber, or can be worn with the tulip as an ear cuff, while the tulip can also be worn alone on a chain as a pendant. The sweet slug is in 18k yellow gold with a rose quartz body and green tsavorites for eyes, and is designed to climb up the ear lobe. It attaches to the tulip with an 18k rose gold wire, with the 18k rose and yellow gold tulip fashioned to sit at the top of the ear. The flower also sparkles with coloured stones, composed of pink sapphires, amethysts, and blue sapphires, while a moonstone water droplet and a blackened silver ant also sit on the petals, with an opal at the tulip’s centre. The piece comes with a 40 cm chain onto which the tulip can be threaded to be worn as a necklace, with a tiny gold maggot on the chain, too.
