Why would a moose be on a levee? It’s a bizarre inside joke within Orli’s family. Despite the nonsensical imagery evoked by an antlered ruminant above a tide barrier, these regal earrings are actually inspired by the ancient royalty of the Near East, complete with the rich purple of amethyst, the royal blue and white of sodalite, and the ancient luster of sterling silver plated with an especially thick layer of 24-karat gold. Orli says, “In these earrings, I combined the look of an ancient Near Eastern artifact with the feel of modern minimalism. As for the inside joke, it’s a mystery!”
