Topkapi One earrings in 18ct white gold with fixed Aeternitas Etoile side bands and set with diamonds on Astrea hoops. Constantinople, the ancient city of Christendom, inspired a collection of unusual designs after my visit there in 2000. The Topkapi Palace was a short walk from Sogukcesme Sokak street in the Sultanahmet. In one of the rooms I found complete 'diamond encrusted tea services' and bowls full of the 'hubbly bubbly' pipe ends. It was the detail on one of these pipe ends that inspired the design of the Topkapi earrings with their intricate diamond settings. From the Journey to Turkey.
