Take a walk through the French Quarter of New Orleans. Keep your eyes and ears open and it's sure to be a stroll you'll never forget. Like all of the world's truly great cities, New Orleans has its own unique personality. Soulful Dixieland jazz and voodoo blues combine with a devil-may-care attitude. Music is its pulse beat and the sweltering heat can spark bewitching fever dreams. To honor the jewel of Louisiana we've designed new earrings as big and bold as the Big Easy — genuine gemstones — that distills the essence of N'awlins into the cool colors of Mardi Gras.
The Flambeaux Earrings feature deep purple amethyst and cool green peridot that will transform any woman into a Bourbon Street beauty queen. The glittering jewels are joined by a troupe of 14k gold- finished beads that shine as bright as a krewe's gold doubloons.
Historically, purple, gold and green — representing justice, power and faith — are the colors that embody the festive spirit of Mardi Gras. For two weeks every year, raucous parades by the Krewes of New Orleans are lit by bright torchlight — flambeaux. As their gaudy floats roll down Bourbon Street, the krewes throw shiny doubloons and colorful beads to the crowds. But make no mistake: the genuine gemstones that make up our Flambeaux Earrings are definitely not for throwing. Experience a little bit of Creole flavor spun into glittering earrings of magic and let the Flambeaux light your way to the Big Easy.
