Colorful and captivating, these light-catching, handcrafted Gypsy earrings are exotic, mysterious and enigmatic, capturing the rich essence of the nomadic peoples after whom they are named. The “Gypsies,” also known as “The Romani,” originated from India and Asia but who live mostly in Europe dispersed in Turkey, Spain, and Southern France, and they also have communities in Brazil and North America. Because of the rich diversity of countries and cultures they are originated from and influenced by, much of the Romani culture is a melding of exotic styles, which is seen in their jewelry, art, and lifestyle.
Color, rhythm, and flair are the signature traits of the Romani culture. In addition to this rich culture is the tradition of journey and travel. The Romani often are considered modern-day travelers on a continuous and never-ending journey. This is often because many of the Romani work at temporary jobs that eventually come to an end, and then they must pick up and move to fresh areas to find new employment to support their families. In addition, many Romani have suffered terrible discrimination and persecution in countries that they have inhabited, and their relocation is to ensure their ultimate survival. Thus they are modern-day nomads whose journey is essential for survival, and it fortifies their spirit. Their ultimate resilience is the ultimate core and essence of these amazing people. It is this journey of life for life that is a part of the Romani spirit, and our earrings capture this amazing physical, emotional, and spiritual journey.
