Note from the designer: I first sourced these two bright Mandarin Garnets and tried to think of what other gemstones I could pair them with. My mind then went straight to Akoya Pearls because of their beautiful pinkish-orange overtones which I thought would be a great match. Just like bubbles, I wanted the pearls to float and to be perfectly graduated in size. The diamonds are the "cherry-on-top" and add a touch of sparkle to the earrings.
