Item# 80-011448 







Description

The timeless design of our round earrings is adapted from the intricate scrolling pattern on original gold beads in the Museums collection of Islamic art. The two delicate gold beads, created in Syria in the eleventh century, were fabricated from wire and strips of sheet gold, decorated with granulation. The pattern is reminiscent of the beveled style used during the ninth century. However, the medium utilized allowed for the meticulously defined lines on the beads.

18K gold overlay, with cultured freshwater pearls. 1 3/4''L. Pierced, with vermeil wires.

  • 18K gold overlay
  • Cultured freshwater pearls
  • 1 3/4''L

Art History

Sophisticated techniques of filigree work and applied granulation characterize much of the jewelry in the Museums collection of Islamic art. During the eleventh to thirteenth century, craftsmen in Egypt, Syria, and Iran produced finely executed intricate gold jewelry with a tendency toward lightweight hollow construction.
