Kimono Fan Earrings

Reminiscent of designs seen in the Met’s production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, these solid brass earrings, electro-plated with a non-tarnishing silver finish are inspired by the enigmatic and kinetic prints by Shimomura Tamahiro (Kyoto, 1905).

  • Solid brass
  • Electro-plated with non-tarnishing silver finish
  • Gilcee print
  • Hypo-allergenic ear wires
  • Hang approx. 2"


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.
