GROUNG earrings

$78.00

Bird depictions are very present in the Armenian arts and culture; from 'Trtchnakir' (bird scripts) to ceramics, architectural stone-carvings or even folktales. 'GROUNG' ("gueh-roong") or KRUNK : CRANE in armenian - a long-legged bird - is one of the rare creatures that chooses a lifelong partner and returns to its old home following seasonal migration. Cranes have a special significance in the Armenian culture, associated with migration and homesickness. Many traditional Armenian folk songs are dedicated to cranes, asking them to come back - bringing some news from their homes and loved ones.
According to popular belief, they are also bearers of good fortune.
---
Extremely light and elegant, these bird earrings are crafted from high quality 18K gold plated brass ; statement pieces that will guarantee some head-turning.
---
The black/blue/red soft feather pieces are removable, allowing two ways of wearing these earrings.

NARINÉE is a contemporary jewelry collection inspired by Armenian architectural and cultural heritage.
