This striking pair of Etruscan Revival earrings prove to be an incredible example of Victorian cannetille work. Each is finely adorned with tiny gold beading that create beautiful patterns raised above luxuriously soft matte gold. This type of detailing is called cannetille work, where the three dimensional adornments are hammered flat onto the piece to create raised patterns.
These rich 14k yellow gold earrings are completely handmade. Each measures about 1 1/4 inches long while the hanging orbs measure about 14 millimeters in diameter (approx. 1/2 inch wide). The backings are hinged lever-backs, suitable for pierced ears.
