Georgian Fecundity - Gold Acorn Earrings
Georgian jewelry glows with such an opulent presence. Dramatic and luxurious in length, this pair of 18k yellow gold earrings shows masterful workmanship. Although appearing quite substantial, these two-element earrings are hollow in construction light in weight and a joy to wear. Filigree and repoussé gold work creates a marvel for the eye.
The surmount has an acorn motif of a cupule (cup) embellished with cross hatched impressed designs and the lower portion with a smooth silken surface. A brace of gold filigree leaves forms a canopy which shelters the nut. The lower dangle is a cluster of five acorns shielded with a series of four filigree gold leaves. Naturalism and whimsy all wrapped in a pair of spectacular Georgian period earrings.
Date: Circa 1830 - 1840.
Measurements: 2-3/4 inches (6.9 cm) in length including ear wire by 5/8 inches (1.6 cm) at the widest. Weight for the pair is 14.4 grams (9.3 dwt).
Hallmarks: Metropoli on later ear wire fittings.
Condition: Very good; both bottom acorn halves have separated slightly with seam showing; a few tiny dents to some acorns; top acorn of one has two pin holes; ear wires are more modern.
