French Sensation: Gold Hoop Earrings
Over the centuries French design has been a standout with an eye for its detail and subsequent transformation into metal and gems. At times signature French characteristics can be found on a piece. One of those hallmarks is the use of an “X” form placed along a surface often a reeded surface. Exactly as we note here, there are four situated at intervals along the hoop.
Clearly influenced by neoclassical tenets, order, simplicity and symmetry are translated into five stylized organic elements of foliage of 18k rose and green gold. Each of the natural shapes are set with a small deep garnet colored paste and connected with twisted wire “stems”. Purely sublime!
