Keiko Mita's inspiration comes from the beautiful landscapes and crystal blue seas of Rebun, the tiny northernmost island of Japan where she was born. Her Long Tear Drop Earrings, which are handmade from Palladium and feature her signature Dune texture, are 62 mm long and 9 mm wide. The contemporary earrings from her Sand Dune Collection have a finished back with a scroll pattern and are accented with 0.10 Carats Diamonds (total weight) at the top. Palladium is a lustrous white precious metal, more valuable than gold or platinum, that does not tarnish and is hypoallergenic. It is the perfect metal for the sensitive woman who wants to make a statement.
