Description

Beginning in the 16th century, expanding global trade routes made pearls an affordable luxury for many. The elite of Renaissance Europe lavishly adorned themselves with pearls as symbols of status, taste, and wealth; irregular baroque pearls were especially favored. Our elegant earrings recall the lustrous pearl jewelry depicted in European paintings in The Met collection.

These masterworks include: Judith with the Head of Holofernes, ca. 1530, by Lucas Cranach the Elder (German, 1472–1553); Portrait of a Young Woman with a Fan, 1633, by Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669); and others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and unique These are absolutely stunning. You do need the right attitude to wear them. They are big and also long. The pearl is of lovely luminous quality, quite irregular in shape, and longer than wide as pictured. There are tiny CZs on the hook part. I bought them for my daughter to try with her strapless wedding gown, and she adored them and chose to wear them them over some other possibilities. They looked regal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Giant, heavy and unattractive I purchased these earrings thinking they were of normal size. Unfortunately they are the size of golf balls, very heavy and they look mis-shaped and ugly. An expensive mistake - unfortunately I won't be wearing them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely but large I thought these were lovely in person,but too large for my ears and face. I had to return them. Beautiful, well made but big.
