She's Like a Rainbow

Inspired by Miami's gorgeous candy-hued Art Deco architecture, Paola Delgado designed these vibrant earrings to be naturally elegant. Dangling from gold-plated frames, the bright teal beads of this pretty pair are hand-carved and dyed from ivory alternative tagua nuts. These bold earrings easily transition from work to weeknight out, so gift these to the girl on the go—you included. Handmade in Ecuador.

We spoke with Paola about her background, her love of tagua, and her relationship to her artisans. Read more on our blog.

“I fell in love with tagua for the small nuances that make it special.”

Paola Delgado had worked for four years on Wall Street when she began to yearn for a more fulfilling and philanthropic occupation. She put her New York life on hold to search for inspiration in Peru, where she grew up. When she came across artisans making beautiful jewelry by hand using Amazonian seeds, she knew she had found her calling, and started her own jewelry business in 2011. Paola's company makes jewelry of sustainable materials only, and provides educational opportunities, healthcare benefits, and fair wages to her artisan partners. Tagua seeds, the company's signature material, are often called "vegetable ivory." They grow on an Amazonian rainforest palm tree, and are harvested after they've fallen to the ground, so no damage is done to the rainforest, or, of course, any animals.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Teal Tagua Drop Earrings:

    Beautiful jewelry. I did decide to add the clear plastic stoppers to make sure they don't fall off.
    They are great for day wear or fancy cocktail attire.
    Very well made and stylish.
