Story

A French Victorian interpretation of a type of earring crafted in the early years of the nineteenth century displays two different enamel plaques of nineteenth century women in provincial dress set against a landscaped background.

Typical of earrings of this period, the scenes are different and are opposing, in other words, either woman faces in or outward depending on how you wish to wear them.

The two-part articulated 18k yellow gold earring sports a surmount encrusted with a half natural freshwater baroque seed pearl 3 mm in diameter. Twisted wire work surrounding the surmount constructs an image akin to a flowerhead cluster.

Supported by delicate chains, ovoid shaped pendants spotlight the hand-pained polychromatic enamel miniature portraits. The dangles are also accented with a framework of corded rope design. A traditional shepherd’s hook finishes the earring.
