Sport a design that’s as whimsical as it is inspirational. These paper airplane earrings in a shining silver finish celebrate the beauty of engineering and the wonder of innovative design.

Earrings are presented in a gift box featuring the following note:

Paper airplanes were made as far back as in ancient China. But the most significant use of paper airplanes was by the Wright brothers, who employed them in creating their designs. The Wrights observed the flexing of their paper models in a wind tunnel and intuited that this could help them control the flight of an airplane. From these simple observations came the hinged aileron and elevator surfaces—which still guide modern aircraft. 

For more than 30 years, David Howell & Company has specialized in the innovative design of sophisticated jewelry, ornaments, bookmarks, and more. Inspired by museum pieces, they adapt original, iconic work into modern, meaningful gifts.
