Piece of the Week: Karma El Khalil’s ‘Nebula’ Earrings
The chandelier earrings are from the designer’s latest collection.
Staying true to El Khalil’s aesthetic, several new pieces also possess a newfound party energy.
These “Piece of the Week” jewels are the chandelier earrings of dreams, a statement piece to be worn for weddings, galas, or soirees.
When designing the “Nebula” earrings, El Khalil had an even grander inspiration in mind, referencing stars and nebulae, the colorful clouds of gas and dust in the night sky.
“I love the contrast of the soft opalescent cosmic clouds and the bright stellar lights that pierce through them,” she said.
“In this design, the aquamarine triangles depict the sharp light extending outward from the stars, and the several hues of oval and brilliant apatite represent the spherical multicolored nebula.”
Crafted in 18-karat yellow gold, the Nebula earrings feature varying shades of oval-cut and round-cut apatite (7.18 carats) and ultra-light trillion-cut aquamarines (25.3 carats).
Their inspiration may be the night sky, but the gems’ visually pleasing turquoise spectrum calls to mind Caribbean waters.
They’re available through the designer’s website for $11,000.
