19th century Swiss jewelry was renowned for its intricate and opulently designed enamel casting. This pair of 14 carat gold earrings is a rare treasure, for they are “nude”, and adorned without the trademark Swiss enameling.

Crafted circa 1860, these earrings are a magnificent statement piece with dormouse tops and fine north-western European construction. There’s a understated whimsy to the design, with celebratory foliate motifs delicately etched across decorated panels.

These earrings also offer a versatile twist with their day/night construction; the bottom portion can be detached, allowing for adaptable styling no matter the occasion. Between the unique Swiss craftspersonship and unique artistry, these earrings are a beautiful addition to any antique jewelry collection!

 

Materials and Features: 14 ct gold

Age/Origin: 19th Century, 1860's

Condition: Very good! It is notable that they were once enameled in blue, but now offer a fascinating "nude" look. We are excited to have them in our stock, especially as they are so versatile!

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.
