Piece of the Week: Wendy Yue’s Cameo Earrings

They’re an atypical take on the classic scarab motif.

Scarabs have been a motif used in jewelry since antiquity and were common to ancient Egypt.

But they’re not often seen depicted in cameo form.

Wendy Yue mixes the antique jewelry references while giving these 18-karat white gold earrings her signature dose of maximalism, surrounding the cameos with yellow jade, orange sapphires, yellow sapphires, white diamonds and rubies.

Not for the faint of heart, the bold, style-arbiter will find these on Moda Operandi, selling for $10,500.
