    Bibi Van Der Velden

    Lapis star alligator bite earring with diamonds and tsavorite

    Inspired by the beauty of imperfection, Bibi van der Velden sculpts exotic materials into one-of-a-kind jewelry evoking her respect for our natural world.

    Intricately hand-crafted to replicate an alligator’s body in miniature, this earring is designed in 18k yellow gold, with the alligator’s mouth acting as the closing mechanism to snap onto the ear. The body of the alligator is crafted from lapis embellished with diamonds, whilst its eyes glisten with tsavorites Its tail gently moves, underlining Bibi’s attention to the most minute of details. A single earring can also be worn as a pendant (chain not included).
