Description

Beginning in the 16th century, expanding global trade routes made pearls an available luxury for many. The elite lavishly adorned themselves with pearls as symbols of status, taste, and wealth; irregular baroque pearls were particularly coveted.

Our elegant earrings honor the lustrous pearl jewelry depicted in European paintings throughout The Met collection, such as Portrait of a Woman (ca. 1670s) by Giovanni Battista Gaulli (Il Baciccio) (Italian, 1639–1709), Portrait of a Young Woman with a Fan (1633) by Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669), and Massimo Stanzione's (Italian, 1585–1656) Judith with the Head of Holofernes (ca. 1640).

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.

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.
