Description

These elegant drop earrings recall a pearl adornment in Mars and Venus United by Love in The Met collection. This beautiful work by Paolo Veronese (Italian, 1528–1588), painted in the 1570s, shows the nude goddess of love and the god of war being bound together with a love knot by the boy Cupid.

The earrings 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A class pair! I bought these during a Met "Flash Sale" and am very happy with my purchase. The gleaming, high-karat gold wash contrasts nicely with the creamy pearls. These have a handcrafted look that makes them seem much more expensive than they are. The earrings are not small in scale - medium/largeish hoops and the pearl drops add extra length. Striking and gorgeous on the ear. Love! My only quibble is that they didn't come with the plastic back stoppers that are absolutely necessary to make sure they don't slip off the ear.
