The Details...

Constructed from Pinchbeck, these circular shaped drop earrings feature an open-work, coiled design - a design that's inspired by the jewellery of the Etruscan civilisation. The earrings are for pierced ears and feature hooks that are most likely silver. The earrings measure 3cm x 1.75cm.  

A Short History...

During the nineteenth century, countless archeological discoveries were made and much was learned about ancient civilisations. Artists and designers were greatly inspired by these ocurrences and there was consequently much reviving of ancient jewelry styles and techniques. Many Etruscan tombs were found in the 1800s and these Victorian earrings pay tribute to the golden jewellery that was excavated within them. 

Wear it With...

A lovely, buttery tone of golden Pinchbeck, these earrings are perfect for pairing with knitwear and denim.
