Story

A take on the girandole motif, the classic three drop 18th and 19th century design for many a jewel, these are fully articulated in seven swaying parts.

The colors are lavish and rich with velvety red, pink and purple hues within the garnets. Twenty in all are cut into round and oval shapes, set closed backed and with foiled beneath.

Fine 15k cannetille work wends its way through, imparting a high-carat gold glow to the whole. The gold forms wisps and curlicues as well as scallop shells and decorative repoussé work that tie the whole tableau together.

Don't often wear longer earrings? You might be surprised with this pair as their delicacy gives them a broad range of possibilities for both varying statures, face shapes and of course occasions to ensure they are seen and worn frequently.

Historical note: Cannetille gold work was only found for a small number of years at the beginning of the 19th century. No wonder, for it was exceedingly labor intensive and meticulous to create. Once the industrial age began, around mid century, and mass produced jewelry came to the forefront, this technique died out along with other hand made methods. Not to be confused with filigree, which is generally flatter overall, cannetille often forms three dimensional beehives of gold dotted with granulation (bead work).
