Cucumber Drop Earrings

$395.00

Is this a gift? Please email lily@monbouquettejewelry.com if you would like us to write a hand-written gift message and gift wrapping.

How it works: Just pop ball open to reveal statement drop earrings in seconds. Easy to wear both earrings up, both down with our signature cucumber bead, or one of each to keep your look edgy.

Why it's special: The textured bead was hand-sculpted in wax by our co-founder, Jenny. It's inspired by the wild cucumbers on her hikes with Lily in Malibu.

Good to know:

  • Two earrings in one — simply put your fingernail in the slit at the bottom of the ball to pop open and reveal a dangling textured bead
  • Made of ethically mined 23.5-karat yellow gold premium plating or 100% recycled sterling silver
  • Free and easy returns on domestic orders.

Patent Pending

Made Responsibly

It's been a personal mission for us to run a jewelry business that is sustainable and ethical to the best of our ability. We keep our product assortment tight and our material list small to ensure every material in every piece is sourced thoughtfully.


 

Sustainable and Ethical Metals

All of our jewelry is made with 100% recycled sterling silver or yellow bronze as certified by Scientific Global Services and ethically mined 23.5-karat gold premium plating.

 

Hand-Selected Freshwater Pearls

Pearls are an easy choice for our carefully curated material list because the process for farming pearls has very low environmental impact and often improves the waters in villages where they are farmed.

 

Made in the USA

All of our jewelry is designed in Santa Monica, California by Jenny and Lily Monbouquette and handcrafted by master jewelers in Rhode Island and California. From the outset we wanted all of our pieces manufactured in the USA. This way we get to enjoy real relationships with the people making our jewelry and know, first hand, they are treated fairly and well compensated for their efforts.

 

Cultured Diamonds

Our lab-grown diamonds match the same chemical, optical, and physical properties as mined diamonds. Cultured diamonds are inherently conflict-free and have significantly less negative environmental impact than mined diamonds.

 

Plastic-free, Reusable, and Recycled Packaging

All of our packaging is plastic free and shipped in re-used Amazon boxes. Every purchase sits safely inside our branded book-box, perfect for sitting on your bookshelf as well as a luxury leather pouch, which is great as a little travel case for your jewelry!

 

Carbon Neutral Shipping

We have invested in a new sustainability initiative to offset the environmental impact of shipping. The platform we are using will calculate the total emissions generated by our shipped orders and this number will become our monthly offset cost. These payments will go toward forest protection initiatives, spearheaded by Pachama. We will be able to measure our impact and how our offset investment is helping the environment and, of course, share this with you!

      Premium Plating and Fill

      We believe that our 23.5-karat gold electro-plating over yellow bronze is more durable than traditional vermeil plating, which requires a thickness of at least 1.5 microns of 10-karat gold over sterling silver. We use 2.5 microns of 23.5-karat gold plating over recycled yellow bronze. We use yellow bronze because it extends the lifetime of the gold plating and is the only base metal that allows for repair if it gets scratched.

      Our gold-fill chain is constructed by layers of gold bonded to a surface with heat and pressure. We prefer to use gold-filled chain because it is more durable than electro-plated chain. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to use the gold-fill process for our sphere charms, which is why we use a very thick electro-plating as mentioned above.

      Rhodium is a metal we electro-plate over some of the sterling silver chain of our Hepworth Silver Necklace to add shine, luster and durability.

      Black Rhodium is a metal we electro-plate over certain parts of the Silver Gem Drop earrings to add contrast between the sterling silver and cultured white diamonds.
