Hanami Cherry Blossom Earrings

These delightful drop earrings featuring three pink, dome-shaped cherry blossoms are inspired by the traditional Japanese custom of Hanami or “flower viewing” that dates back over a thousand years.

Made of solid brass electro-plated with a non-tarnishing silver finish and a giclee print, they are approximately 2” long and have hypo-allergenic ear wires.

Reflective of the Japanese flowering motifs seen in the costumes designed for the Met’s powerful production of Madama Butterfly.

History

Puccini’s original version of Madama Butterfly premiered at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala in 1904. The composer was inspired to write an opera about a tragic love between a young Japanese geisha and an American Navy officer after seeing David Belasco’s play by the same name performed in London in June 1900. Puccini’s score includes many Japanese folk melodies, and is one of his most sweeping and sophisticated. It remains one of the world’s most popular operas.
