Story

The closer you look, the more these antique earrings reveal their intricacy and noteworthy design.

Victorian and dating to circa 1860, these dangling and articulated earrings were created in 15k yellow gold. In a remarkable five parts, their length of 1 3/4 inch begins with a subtle snake motif surmount.

Two tiny granulations of gold represent the eyes, and applied wire work accents the head. From this is suspended an umbrella of scalloped gold with additional wire work.

Beneath hangs a sphere of gold and around the equator, more similar twisted gold. Another petite cap rests above three graduated orbs.

All the orbs are hollow as reminiscent of the ancient archeological techniques and styles that served as inspiration for these marvels of construction.
