The Pillar earrings are made from fairtrade silver and limestone which originates from Kilkenny in Ireland and is an integral part of architect Kengo Kuma’s design of the V&A Dundee. These striking earrings have been beautifully crafted using off-cuts of the limestone floor tiles featured in the museum and comprise relics of ancient fossils, a fascinating characteristic of this natural material.
Materials: Kilkenny Limestone and sterling silver
Care instructions: Limestone is a naturally porous material and can be cleaned with mild soapy water. If it starts to dull over time, use olive oil to revive the stone. Silver can be cleaned with silver polishing cloth. Due to the nature of stone this item is fragile, please treat with care.
