UNDULE : Blending in is not an option with Linda Hagobian’s eye-catching ebony wood and turquoise earrings. Rich ebony wood hoops that are hand-carved in Mali enhance the already pristine hue of turquoise from the notable Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona. The luxe way Linda Hagobian combines all-natural materials makes these ebony wood turquoise earrings an instant knockout. Earrings have sterling silver post and omega closure.
Linda uses turquoise, ebony, diamonds, Italian-crafted 18-karat gold, and sterling silver findings in all of her pieces. While she crafts the designs, it takes a global village to assemble Hagobian's pieces, from the artisans in Italy who painstakingly make sure each graduated piece of turquoise is of the right size and color and perfectly strung, to the 42 African men and women who carve the ebony into precise shapes. As a sign of gratitude, the company donates part of the proceeds of the collection to Dogon Schulen, which builds schools in Mali, West Africa.
