Description

Our stellar huggie earrings evoke the celestial motifs in a stained-glass roundel (1390) at The Met Cloisters. Crafted in a large court workshop in Niederösterreich, Austria—which specialized in elongated figures positioned in profile, heavy masses of drapery, and an unusually rich range of colors—the roundel was originally installed in the castle at Ebreichsdorf near the Hungarian border. Having withstood attacks by the Mongols in the 13th century followed by the Turks in the 17th century, the castle never returned to its medieval splendor; with the exception of a surviving panel in Vienna, the windows housed at The Cloisters are all that remain of the structure's magnificent glasswork.

Beautiful and classic.

Beautiful and classic. I do agree with the other reviewer that the posts are a bit larger than normal, I’ve found that it’s the angle of them that’s hard to get them in. The weight is heavy but not too, they just seem hardy and so beautiful on.

Lovely small hinged hoops, but the post diameter is so big I can’t force it through the hole in my earlobe even using Aquaphor to help it slide. In over 50 years with pierced ears this is a first. I’m so sad to have to return these!
