A rare pair of Italian micro-mosaic earrings, set in gold fill, circa 1860, these earrings were recently discovered in France, likely an excellent example of Grand Tour Archeological Revival 19th century splendor. The fine ancient-esque setting electrifies a dark slate tonal selection of micro mosaics depicting a beautiful pair of fruit bowls-- these are simply magnificent.

There is a certain smartness to the design of these incredible earrings- I am particularly fond of the solid gold ear wires and the delicate greco-roman revival detail at the tops of the mosaic pannels. 


Materials & Features: gold fill, micromosaic

Age/Origin: Italian, 19th C

Measurements: 8 grams, 2.35”

Condition: as mentioned above, they are in good condition with some wear to the micro mosaics- overall, a terribly coveted set.

Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece. Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry.
