The age of plant jewelry

Plant jewelry, like hymn to nature and the ephemeral side of beauty. Designers are now replacing rubies, diamonds, sapphires and precious stones in general with real plants and flowers. The Spanish collective Keef Palas has created dangling earrings with everlasting flowers, wheat ears or oat spikelets. Meanwhile the brand D’Heygere, a past mistress in subverting objects, has dreamed up large hoop earrings into which you can slip a leaf, a flower. The accessory accessorised. 

  • Stéphanie D'Heygère - "Triptych Holder" and "Canister" hoops

  • Keef Palas - Earrings "Ephemeral" collection in brass, silver, oat and wild wheat
