Mario Bellini: Earrings

Earring in gold, turquoise, red agate, white and black onyx

Mario Bellini is an internationally renowned architect and designer. His body of work ranges from architecture and urban design to furniture and industrial design.

His earring designs really interest me because they do not look like what typical earring ‘should’ look like. His designs are hoops which hang over the entire ear, instead of being pierced in the lobe.
