The August earcuffs
The August earcuffs are made of three single earcuffs that can be worn together or separately. They are entirely handmade made in Paris, in brass dipped in gold, silver, or silver with a bright blue varnish. They stay in place thanks to the many many trials we did to get the diameter and opening right, and are sold by three.
The story behind the August earcuffs is the island of Capri. Roman emperors used to holiday in Capri and among them Caesar Augustus - also known as Octavian - is an iconic figure on the island: a famous statue of him stands on the road between Capri and Anacapri, and one of the oldest hotels on the island is called the Caesar Augustus. The three colours of the August earcuffs are a nod to this mythical island, and to the Mediterranean in general, where really all we need are these three colours: gold, silver, and a stunningly bright blue.
