We discovered the spectacular vintage glass cabochons featured in these earrings in a dusty warehouse in the New York garment district over fifteen years ago.
The sturdy concentric lines in the glass remind us of ripples emanating from a stone thrown into an aquamarine pool, perhaps to make a wish. So, we named them after the world’s most famous wishing well, the Trevi Fountain.
We adore how the circles in the glass contrast with the airy Art Deco filigree stampings.
