Description

Description

Inspired by a pair of fifthfourth century B.C. earrings, the design of our Cypriot Carnelian Earrings reflects the boat-shaped construction of the original. Featuring carnelian mounted in gold settings, a filigree motif was applied to the design. The original earrings are embellished with granulation, an ancient form of ornamentation in which tiny grains of gold are fused to an underlying surface metal. Such a combination of a gold setting and a semiprecious stone, while familiar in rings, is not characteristic of mainland Greek jewelry of the Classical period, but rather jewelry from the East, where colored stones and glass were used with gold beginning as early as the Archaic period (ca. 700480 B.C.).

Sterling silver, with 24K gold overlay and carnelian. Made in the USA. Pierced, with gold- filled ear wires. 1 1/8''L.
