Story

It is surprising that the idea of mutable jewelry isn't more prevalent. In the 18th and 19th centuries, a number of earring styles cleverly allowed two looks, one for day and one more dramatic for night time and soirees.

In glorious form, these antique Georgian day night earrings utilize gossamer thin gold work, cannetille whorls, and repoussé flourishes. The technique of cannetille, no longer produced today, fashioned tiny spirals or beehives of gold.

Repoussé starts with a thin metal sheet that is pressed upward from the back to create various puffed shapes.

In 15k yellow gold, these earrings are long and splendid when worn with the drop. Light in weight, yet powerful in presentation, organic forms surround faceted glass panels, one in the top mount and one placed in the bottom.

These serve as an ethereal backdrop to the exceptional artistry involved in the creation of these circa 1830's earrings. Complete with the original back to front ear wires, their condition is remarkable.
