Dating from the 1850's/60's, these antique Etruscan Revival earrings are the most strikingly lovely creation! Featuring intricate applied wirework around with a gentle pink Rhodolite Garnet and a pale green Chrysoberyl, they were made in the spirit of the ancient jewellery which had been unearthed at Pompeii and Herculaneum by jewellers who worked tirelessly to rediscover these skills.
In superbly lovely condition, the handwork so fine and light, which makes them comfortable to wear, they measure an inch from the top of the wire. In 15ct yellow gold, the new wires which we have applied are 18ct gold. An effusion of ancient beauty!
