Description

Macklowe Gallery

These delicate earrings by Neha Dani are inspired by the Brassica plant, prized for its ornamental varieties. In Dani’s sensitive interpretation, a flexible cascade of ruffled petals sparkles with colorless and fancy pink diamonds that graduate both in size and hue, offering the nuanced tones and variegated surface of a natural blossom. Highlighted by chunky, old mine cut diamonds set in 18kt rose gold, the earrings draw light and warmth to the face. Described by the New York Times as “a cross between alchemist and painter,” Dani is a prize-winning Indian artist-jeweler. She creates one-off jewels in a time-consuming, hands-on process that yields flamboyant and seductive pieces. A world traveller, art lover, and gemologist—trained both in the lab and the field—she selects the finest gems and collaborates with the finest craftsmen.
