Fabulous Pearl Set Earrings
Absolutely gorgeous, this pair of 18k rose gold earrings pairs up with delicate cultured pearls. Mid 20th century in date, the two-part construction and general conformation is in the manner of those fabulous earrings of the Victorian age.
The three-dimensional aspects of these earrings are emphasized with the subtle use of tiered levels. A centered oval disc is set with a cruciform of five cultured saltwater pearls in modified coronet mounts. The pearls are enclosed by intricate incised scroll designs all around the disc.
Surrounding the inner disc is an open circle of delicate pierced gold work with a smooth upraised perimeter. Above the centered disc is a flowerhead placed against an open work element with twisted rope detail. Directly south a classic appliqué form is situation at the bottom to balance the symmetry of the earring. A simple cultured pearl set surmount finishes the look.
Date: Circa 1940.
