Magnificent pair of original early 19th century earrings made c1800 to 1820, in the Georgian period.
Each earring is set in a fine eighteen-carat yellow gold setting with a shepherd’s hook fitting at the back.
The main section of the earrings in the front is made from what is known as pietra dura mosaic mosaic. It is the art of putting very small pieces of stone and marble together to make a picture, usually representing flower arrangements: two beautiful little baskets of flowers in this case
All the details that you see on these earrings are made from small pieces of marble: there is no paint involved.
