Story

Late summer days of mellifluous golden sun, grape clusters laden on the vine, the sky transparent azure with hints of wispy clouds languidly adrift. Perhaps summer time meant more during the early years of the 1800s without central heat, motor cars and dial-in temperature parkas suitable for Arctic travel.

If so, the use of grape clusters as a motif for jewelry was sure to stir up redolent visions even during the depths of a bitter winter. It's a reminder of better times, hope, and that slightly heady feeling after a sip of wine.

Scarce and fine, these earrings are a rare example of grape cluster motif jewelry from the late Georgian period. More akin to the Victorian years, these are assuredly created circa 1820 with their use of cannetille gold work as well as patterned thin gold only seen during this time.

The earrings are articulated in two parts. Each is encrusted with pyrope garnets either in the form of a high cabochons or with a few facets at the top and each is set with prongs.

The bottom dangle is hollow with the grapes topped with six gold patterned leaves. The surmount creates a flower motif. Evident is a touch of cannetille work at the top and bottom of the dangle, all in 15k yellow gold.

Light to wear, it's time to reap your harvest
