Story

The Victorian era was awash in revivals of both ancient and classic jewelry styles. One of the more outstanding types is that of Etruscan revival. Here 15k yellow gold domes are united with gold wire work and turquoise cut en cabochon. A perfect mid length, the round surmount features a single cabochon turquoise centered with wire work bezel and twisted rope perimeter.

Prominently centered within the larger oval form is a pavé of turquoise cabochons with corded rope detailing. Around the surface six (6) turquoise cabochons in gold collets are dispersed among a weave pattern of twisted gold wire. Similar corded rope work accentuates the outer edge. Note the detail of a love knot of wire which covers the connection point between top and bottom elements. Although the earrings appear weighty, they are easy to wear and do not pull on the ear lobe.

Date: Circa 1870.
