The Keeper of Keys Earrings

Regular price £135

Sterling Silver

Gold Dipped Sterling Silver

Rose Gold Dipped Sterling Silver

9ct Yellow Gold


This abstract fragment was part of a 2nd century BC locking system, found by a metal detector near Sheffield. The fragment, which now looks more like a Barbara Hepworth Maquette than a fragment of British history, is designed to cling around the ear.

Handmade in England, these earrings bear Lylie’s signature Salvaged Hallmark, indicating that they are made from 100% recycled precious metal. All ear stems are 9ct White, Yellow or Rose Gold. Finally, please note, the butterfly backs are not 100% recycled at this time.

A little care can go a long way in keeping your jewellery fine for a lifetime:

- Avoid perfume, sprays or lotions as they may tarnish or damage your jewellery's surface, pearls or gemstones.

- Avoid wearing your jewellery during physical work such as gardening or sports.

- Avoid chlorinated swimming pools.

- Store your jewellery pieces in fabric lined boxes or pouches to avoid scratches and chain knots.
