Rosemary Earrings

By The Met


Celebrating the beauty of the natural world, these earrings highlight the pure elegance of unadorned herbs, shrubs, berries, and leaves—from fragrant rosemary and eucalyptus to the majestic oak. It recalls the verdant gardens at The Cloisters, the branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to the art and architecture of the Middle Ages. Places of beauty and contemplation, the three enclosed gardens at The Cloisters contain more than 300 species of plants, which illuminate the important role that plants played in medieval art and life—from the medicinal to the allegorical.
