The Head Band is a modern version of the Old Dutch 'Oorijzer' [Ear Iron]. The ear iron was part of the costume for women in the Netherlands from the 16th century. Initially, the ear iron was a metal bracket to keep the hats in place. Over time the ear iron grew into a showpiece, gold plates or curls, framing the head of the women.

This beautiful headpiece can be worn in multiple ways, as a headband or choker.

Material Brass

MvdT designs are handmade of pure metals, brass, and sterling 925 silver. Brass is a nickel free alloy of copper and zinc. It has been used for centuries as a semi-precious alternative to gold.

Every piece will tarnish and age differently as it is exposed to a range of factors. Areas with a higher level of humidity will see a more rapid transformation in comparison to those that are colder and drier. Depending on the pH level of your skin the metals can shine or oxidize. In some cases, the oxidization can leave a mark on your skin.

The MvdT Collection was created with antiquity in mind and intended to age over time. To return your jewel to its original raw brass color use the care polish set.

Meet The Designer

Marlous van der Toorn is a jewelry designer with a background in fashion. Six years ago she started her creative journey. This resulted in a 6-month adventure that took her to the other side of the world. In Bali, Indonesia, she learned from local artisans the art and crafts of jewelry making. The outcome is a beautiful line of exclusive, complementary pieces.

“Creating my own designs and the opportunity to share these with you makes me feel very privileged. Through my travels, I gather inspiration to create timeless, unique collections based on my life experience. I hope my story empowers you to be your own legend and find your way to make each day a gift and chase your dreams. All pieces are made of pure metals out of a conscious, sustainable perspective and no plating is used. Please, take care of your jewels and they will shine a lifetime." - Marlous van der Toorn
