Nestled just 15 minutes outside of Lacoste, every Saturday morning, the streets of Apt come alive with vendors loading in their wares and bringing their best merchandise to form Apt's Grand Marché. This market, which has been taking place for 5 centuries, is one of the oldest and liveliest markets in the whole of Provence. The entire city lines with merchants selling everything from just-picked fruits and veggies to honey, fresh flowers, wine, charcuterie, soaps, baskets, jewelry and so much more!
Inspired by the unique city of Apt and the amazing merchants that bring the city to life on market day, these earrings capture the transitory moment of the one day when the hustle and bustle of the market temporarily overtakes the magnificent historic city.
Mesmerized by the perfect combination of busy locals rushing through the streets to do their weekly shopping and the quiet colors of the artisan and farmer tents, our Apt earrings feature a geometric frame, resembling the stone walls of the city that beautifully fades into the background, while a single flower peeks through and captures attention.
Pair the simplicity of these pretty earrings with our Fleur de Deux Vignes Cuff for a more spirited statement.
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 30mm in length, by 17mm at the widest point, for a total hang length of around 40mm. 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.
