The inspiration of this piece was from a Japanese painting called The Great Wave off Kanagawa, it also took the meaning from an ancient Chinese poem. The shape of the wave was the element from the painting, the designer used blue sapphires to represent the waves, however the concept of the moon was from the poem, the dangling yellow sapphire also gave the earring some movements. In Chinese culture, moon represents reunion and good memories. The designer would like to express the traditional Asian culture through the piece.
