THE BETTINA I
The Bettina is the perfect marriage of baroque pearls and organic shell-like shapes that have been carefully hand-moulded, using recycled metals where possible for sustainability purposes. She comes in two shapely guises, and is made to order and set by hand by our talented jeweller friend Karien from KVL in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The Bettina I features white baroque pearls dangling from sterling silver shell-like organic settings with 22ct gold lustre accents.
The Bettina I’s setting is approximately 15x14mm in size. The size of the whole earring varies as it depends on the size of the baroque pearls (which vary in shape and size). Set on sterling silver with recycled 9ct gold accents.
Note that the lifestyle shot shown, featuring the lovely Sikhokhele wearing the Bettina in peacock baroque freshwater pearls, is a different colour pearl to the Bettina I or II.
Each pearl is made by nature, unique, and may therefore be slightly different in size, shape, or hue to the image(s) shown. These variations enhance the unique beauty of the piece.
