Description

During the Renaissance, collectors' taste for bronze statuettes and portrait medals coincided with an interest in classical antiquity. Our earrings were inspired by a bronze portrait medal in The Met collection that shows Isabella di Capua in profile wearing a large pendant earring. The medal, by artist Jacopo Nizolla da Trezzo (Italian, 1515/19–1589), was cast about 1546–55.

Isabella di Capua was princess of Molfetta in southern Italy. This signed medal was probably commissioned by her husband Ferrante Gonzaga, who served as a general to Emperor Charles V during her residence in Milan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the price This lovely design had so much promise, however I was very disappointed in the earrings when I tried them on. The metal must be bent (gently of course) to put them on, then bent again to make them hang straight. After one time trying on, they were uneven. I feel the product is cheaply made. Absolutely lovely design, very poorly manufactured.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Earrings are larger than pictured. These are lovely earrings, but it's not possible from the picture to determine their size. These were larger than my wife likes to wear and so were returned for an exchange. The quality though is very nice, as are all Met products purchased to date.
