They call it the jewel of the sea or the living fossil. It is the symbol of expansion and renewal and represents divine proportion. We are talking about the Nautilus shell, a fascinating marine creature, thanks to the impeccable symmetry of the shell. It is a boundless source of inspiration for different artistic expressions. Its perfect spiral even appeals to the jewelry industry. Designer Monica Sordo has translated the sequence into a pair of earrings with architectonic lines. Realized in gold and obsidian, it gives a particularly contemporary twist to the most ancient shape in the world.
