Description

Unique art jewelry inspired by The Met collection.

These stylish earrings honor the "Marlborough Gem," a 19th-century adornment in The Met's European Sculpture and Decorative Arts holdings. So named for reputedly belonging to a collection formed by the fourth duke of Marlborough, the original ornament features a central cameo based on a Roman type in which the subject glances over her shoulder. She's framed by an assortment of smaller cameos—added by a subsequent owner—a few of which may claim classical origins. The Museum's ensemble illustrates the age-old practice of incorporating cameos to build pieces of greater complexity.
