Antique Archaeological Revival Earrings
Fine granulation and corded gold wire accents in a piece of jewelry are often clues as to what is known as Etruscan Revival. Ancient gold working techniques and styles reverberated throughout the later part of the Victorian era and beyond.
Earrings of hollow 14k yellow gold display an elegant simplicity of form detailed by granulation and scrolled gold wire work. A flowerhead surmount centered with turquoise suspends a three-dimensional marquise shaped pendant drop of gold appointed with cabochons of turquoise and paste gems. Ornate elements created from simple drops and twists of gold caress the body of these Etruscan revival earrings. Later shepherd’s hooks complete the piece.
Date: Circa 1880.
Measurements: 1-11/16 inches (4 cm) in length including ear wire and 1-5/16 of an inch (3.3 cm) without by 3/8 of an inch (1 cm) at the widest. Weight of 5.5 grams (3.5 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; later 14k yellow gold ear wires.
