Our classic circular Rachel studs are handcrafted in a choice of either sterling silver or 9kt gold.* Two finishes are available in this design. For the matte option, we have polished the sides. The opposite is the case for the polished option, whereby we have left the sides matte and polished the front. Each piece of jewellery in our Terrain collection is named after an Irish maker or sculptor:
Rachel Joynt, originally from Caherciveen, is a prolific public sculptor whose work is predominantly site-specific. For Joynt, a successful public artwork needs to have a sense of place, a freshness, some intrigue and playfulness.
Each earring measures 7mm in diameter x 2mm thick.
*The sterling silver and 9kt gold we use in our jewellery collections comes from a certified refiner of recycled precious metal in Germany. Dealing with their local agent here in Dublin, we order metal to our specifications (be that bullion for casting, bar or sheet) produced from smelted, pre loved jewellery and objects. Any metal ‘waste’ created during the making process is returned to our supplier to be recycled back into the process.
