If you are looking for something truly unusual these Venetian glass intaglios are a great choice! One of a kind, they depict the goddess Athena, who was known for protecting lives through generosity and compassion. She was a special patron of the arts and embodied wisdom.
Colorful, vitreous pastes molded into cameos or intaglios, are an ancient part of a jewelry making history. The style can be traced back as far as the Mesopotamia and was further developed by craftsmen from the ancient Roman colony of Aquileia.
Each earring is a 12 x 16 mm oval, bezel set in pure 22k gold with granulated accents. Ear wires are 22k. Pure silver backs to allow the light to reflect and illuminate the sea colored glass. They hang about 3/4" from the ear lobe.
