Nila x Pippa Small Lapis Lazuli Drop Earrings
The Nila x Pippa Small lapis lazuli drop earrings are part of our collaborative collection with artist, anthropologist and designer Pippa Small. Sharing Nila’s philosophy of impact through design and craft sustainability, Pippa has generously shared a selection of her designs for this collaboration.
Designed with a simple gold hook carrying an elegantly cut stone, the earrings are a beautiful example of Pippa’s designs that are inspired by her love for natural forms and delicate details. The stones have been hand-cut by a master stonecutter in Sanganer, Jaipur whom Pippa has worked with for over 20 years.
Lapis lazuli has an intense color display, the result of deep blue lazurite, pyrite that gives the gold specks and striations of cloudy white cause by calcite and other minerals. Much like the ‘blue gold’ indigo dye, lapis lazuli was once a highly treasured stone, with evidence of its fondness found across cultures through history. Found in Afghanistan, it is called the wisdom stone and is believed to inspire honesty, balanced judgement and self-expression in the wearer. It is the birthstone for those born in September and December.
