Specs: Based on the shape of 15th century BC figure eight shields from the Greek islands, these post earrings are perfect for everyday wear in primary or secondary holes. Fabricated in 18k yellow gold and featuring 0.04 carats of white diamonds, these are the perfect gift for any loved one.

Story: These stunning earrings are part of Meredith's Contour collection. As the name suggests, the Contour Collection is about lines that define boundaries that give form. The Contour Collection features ethical diamonds and precious stones in shallow, faceted form. By rendering the raw material in shallow form, the jewelry puts in the forefront the unusual colorations, inclusions, and markings, as well as, the contours lines that shape the stones. Meredith plays with geometric-shaped stones in arrangements to create an organic effect. Conversely, she relies on geometric shapes to frame freeform, irregular stones.  This aesthetic based on dualism culminates in alternative images of the YinYang. Here two parts make the whole and one is defined by difference and by the existence of the other. The contour line bounds them together and creates the balance. Again Meredith plays with the boundaries between the similar and the different, the geometric and the organic, and the raw and the refined.
