Story

Long, and advantageously light in weight, these sumptuous Italian 18k yellow gold earrings illustrate the fine art of repoussé precious metal work.

The rococo forms are comprised of opposing c-scrolls and rocaille decorations with flowing scrollwork patterns with hints of organic botanicals. The use of repoussé is perfectly suited to convey the sense of lightness, grace and ornamentation for which the style of rococo is known.

The era was the 1830s and gowns showed a good bit of décolletage, although often veiled by fichu or lace coverings, and hair was upswept. Naturally, long earrings became the fashion of the day.

Extra luxurious, these earrings were created with the same design both front and back and are hollow between. Many in this era are just one sided with no backing, or a flat, unadorned back.

While gold was in short supply due to the European wars, jeweler's created repousse to maximize the look. Long and sumptuous, these fulfill the desire for an earring with great drama tempered by visual details.

Note: Repoussé is the technique whereby thin sheets of gold or other metal are pressed upward from the reverse to create three dimensional, puffy forms.
