Ginkgo drop earring
Ginkgo biloba, known as ginkgo, also spelled gingko, or as the maidenhair tree, is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct. It is found in fossils dating back 270 million years.
This silver ginkgo leaf drop earring is softly textured on it's undulating form and hang from a gently curved wire.
I designed this piece for RBG Kew in 1999 as part of a larger range that sold at Kew Garden for many years.
Leaf 23mm x 25mm
