Story

The poissarde earring arose in popularity in Europe at the end of the 18th century. Delicate hoops of gold, often with ornamentation, are appointed with cabochons of cobalt blue enamel with a centered rose cut diamond. Each diamond is foil backed and set into a silver cut down crimped collet mount and fitted with 18k yellow gold hoops and "S" curve support. It is interesting to note that this is the first time for in hundreds of years that the style of hoop earrings returned in European jewelry due to archaeological discoveries of ancient artifacts. Please see page 32 of “Georgian Jewellery” by Collings and Dawes for similar examples.
