Description

Attract compliments when you wear our unique openwork earrings based on a beautiful 16th-century German key in The Met collection. They were handcrafted with the finest materials in the New York City atelier of goldsmith Donna Distefano, whose luxurious jewelry is inspired by her love of medieval art and literature, Renaissance paintings, and ancient techniques.

The growth of material wealth and private property in the late Middle Ages led to an increased use of iron locks on doors, coffrets, and chests. By the Gothic period and on into the Renaissance, prosperous patrons had elevated locks and keys to objects of beauty, worthy of elaborate decoration.
