Pompeii Pearl Earrings
Inspired by earrings found in the ruins of Pompeii, these earrings echo the design of ancient goldsmiths and the lost city of Pompeii. There were wonderful jewelry artisans during this time, supplying men and women with numerous styles of necklaces, rings, earrings and arm rings, in precious metals and embellished with pearls, emeralds, carnelians, agate or jasper. Ancient earring designs frequently featured a double pearl drop from a bar or gemstone.
Many of the jewelry items found in the ruins of Pompeii included exquisite design, a sure sign that throughout the ages people loved to be adorned with beautiful jewelry. The artist has put her own twist on this ancient design by using granulation to decorate the ear wires and by adding contemporary pearls. Pearls are hand selected and may differ slightly in shape and color from the photo. Read more in my blog post.
