The Praesidio shell is a co-design between Christina Macpherson and Monarc for the Unum Collection. These interchangeable and versatile hoops were created around the brief that we often have a favourite pair of wearable earrings that we crave to elevate for different occasions.
Christina on the inspiration behind our Praesidio design:
“It’s a seemingly simple, small thing: a shell on the sand. Yet it’s been here longer than any of us and will continue to be here much beyond our existence too. Generations of change will happen around that shell. It will be a part of movements and moments and un-graspworthy things. We pass these things by every day, not really acknowledging all the stories they've witnessed, or the rise and fall of civilisations they've been part of. I want these designs to serve as a reminder to honour the land we tread on and the oceans we swim in – they are so much bigger than any of us.”
