At the center of the village in Lacoste sits a Campanile (Italian for bell tower), that broadcasts the time and is heard across the area. The structure is mighty and strong, built of stacked cobblestones with an open metalwork bell structure at the top. Flowers decorate the cracks and crevices, adding a feminine touch of color to this masculine tower.
Every week, the campanile is manually wound, so it will continue to function for next week. By week's end, the time is off by a minute or two (all the locals are well aware of the minor slip in time), until the clock is wound again and corrected for the week ahead. The special sound of the bell just adds to the charm of the village.
Our Campanile earrings capture that perfect harmony of masculinity with a feminine touch of the charming and magical structure that is the Campanile of Lacoste.
Stroll through Kristen Baird® Jewelry’s newest jewelry-design collection, influenced by her whimsical, summer days spent in LaCoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from a weekly, spirited provincial market. Duck behind colorful, medieval-arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against ancient Roman castle walls—laced with fragile blooms, endless vines and romantic peepholes revealing the bold, organic palette of the valley below. Experience low-hanging branches bursting with deep-pink cherry blossoms, a patchwork quilt of bright emerald olive orchards and brilliant lavender fields awoken by buzzing bees in a sophisticated collection that bares every sensation imaginable—the Bonjour Belle Collection.
These handcrafted earrings measure approximately 42mm in length, by 20mm at the widest point, for a total hang length of around 52mm. Gemstone options may be available upon request. For your convenience, rubber earring backs are included with these dangle/ear-wire style earrings. To ensure balance of comfort and secure placement of your earrings, we recommend always wearing your pieces with the provided earring backs.
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
