Sphinx Hanging Hoop Earrings in Gold VermeilMotley x Emily Robson £120
Why it’s Motley
The sphinx was the guardian of choice for Ancient Egyptian temples - fierce, and great with a riddle (killer combination). This majestic pair are plated in 18 karat gold for an understated desk-to-dinner hoop with a mythical twist.
The Motley Everyday collection celebrates understated genius; small but mighty, each piece of jewellery holds its own. Not to be underestimated.

About the Designer
Ex-Christopher Kane designer Emily Robson draws inspiration from all over the world for her distinctive jewellery, often referencing ancient artisanal techniques. Her bold and brilliant collection for MOTLEY is a classic Robson riff on Egyptian iconography, featuring jackals, sphinxes and torques. Check out more of her work here.
What is Gold Vermeil?
Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) refers to jewellery that is sterling silver plated with gold to a thickness of between 2 and 3 microns. Using sterling silver as a base and plating with double the thickness of commercial “flash plating” produces a more resilient layer of gold that doesn’t wear away and ensures our jewellery is hypoallergenic. We use 18 karat gold in our plate.
