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 was working on Wall Street when she realized she wanted to do something more fulfilling. So she moved back to Peru, her home country, to search for inspiration. While traveling, she met a group of artisans making beautiful jewelry using Amazonian seeds, she knew she had found her calling. Today, Paola runs a small jewelry-making business using tagua nuts, a humane alternative to ivory. Since her team harvests the nuts after they’ve fallen, no damage is done to the rainforest or animals.

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.
