APAIR OFVICTORIAN 14K~18KYELLOW GOLDITALIAN MICRO MOSAIC LONG DANGLEEARRINGS!
THESE ASTONISHING CIRCA 1830-1850'S VENETIAN MASTERPIECES ARE CRAFTED IN SOLID YELLOW GOLD (OF 14KT~18K PURITY). THE ORNATE SCROLLING OPENWORK DESIGN IS SO TRADITIONALLY ITALIANATE WITH THEIR STRONG ROCOCO REVIVAL INFLUENCE. THESE EXTRA LONG AND EVER SO IMPRESSIVE EARRINGS MEASURE 2&1/4 INCHES IN OVERALL LENGTH WITH THEIR WIDEST POINT AT JUST OVER 5/8 INCH IN WIDTH. THE BOTTOM IS BEZEL SET WITH AN ASTONISHING SCENE OF A BIRD (DUCK ?) ON A GRASSY GROUND WITH FLOWERS AND LEAVES ABOVE. THIS ENTIRE SCENE IS CREATED WITH MICROSCOPIC VENETAIN GLASS SECTIONS ARRANGED TO ACCOMPLISH THE IMAGE. THIS TECHNIQUE IS AMAZINGLY COMPLICATED AND PART OF THE REASON SUCH EXAMPLES ARE SO RARELY FOUND, DESIRED AND VALUEABLE. THE TOPS WITH STYLIZED FLEUR DI LIS AND A SHEPHARD HOOK PIERCED EAR WIRE WHICH IS ALSO CRAFTED IN ATLEAST 14KT YELLOW GOLD. THE DELICATE NATURE OF THE GOLD WORK, VIOLITILITY OF THE MOSAIC AND WEIGHT OF 6 GRAMS (COMBINED) IS WHY SO VERY FEW HAVE SURVIVED OVER 150 YEARS. FEW PIECES OF JEWELRY EXIST WITH SUCH AGE BUT PIECES SUCH AS THIS ARE BY FAR THE RAREST ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MOSAIC IS INTACT AND THE GOLD HAS NO BREAKS, TEARS OR REPAIRS. YES, THE EARRINGS SHOULD ONLY BE WORN ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS AS THESE ARE TRUE MUSEUM TREASURES THAT ARE IRREPLACEABLE. I'VE HANDLED THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PIECES OF FINE ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY BUT ONLY SEENA VERY FEW EXAMPLES OF EARLY MICRO MOSAIC JEWELRY. IT'S WHY I KEPT THESE MASTERPIECES OF ITALIAN ART FOR MYSELF EVER SINCE ACQUIRING THEM OVER 20 YEARS AGO WHILE HANDLING THE ESTATE OF A RETIRED OPERA SINGER IN PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA. EVEN THE BACKS ARE WITHOUT DAMAGE HAVING THE ORIGINAL GOLD SUPPORT BAR AND PROTECTIVE GOLD PANEL TO SECURE THE MOSAIC. SO OFTEN THE PATTERNED GOLD RELIEFS ARE SQUISHED, DENTED OR BROKEN AND MISSING BUT THESE ARE IN EXTROARDINARY CONDITION WITH NO SOLDER REPAIRS OR RESTORATIONS. I'M SURE THE GOLD WIRES HAVE BEEN REPLACED AT SOME POINT AS ONE EXPECTS FROM 150+ YEARS OF BEING BENT BACK AND FORTH TO APPLY & REMOVE THEM FROM THE EARS BUT OTHERWISE, THEY ARE ALL ORIGINAL WITH NOTHING BEING REPLACED. I HAVE MYSELF WORN THESE TO SOME ANTIQUARIAN EVENTS, MUSEUM PARTIES AND CERTAINLY ANTIQUE SHOWS I WOULD FREQUENT. THEY ALWAYS WERE A HIT WITH EVERYONE WHO KNEW AND UNDERSTOOD JUST HOW UNIQUE AND SPECIAL THEY ARE. I'VE NEVER SEEN A PAIR AS LARGE, LONG, BEAUTIFUL OR OF SUCH AN AGE ESPECIALLY WITH THE SUMPTUOUS ROCOCO DESIGNS BUT WHAT EVEN CAME CLOSE WAS ONLY AT THE MOST EXCLUSIVE OF ANTIQUE JEWELRY STORES AND PRICED WHAT I PAID FOR MY LAST CAR. REGARDLESS OF THE RARITY OR VALUE, I'M SO THRILLED TO HAVE OWNED THESE CLASSICAL BEAUTIES FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 DECADES AND NOW, AT MY RIPE OLD AGE OF 83, I'VE DECIDED IT'S FINALLY TIME TO PART WITH THESE AND OTHER WONDEROUS TREATS FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION. IT'S A SPECIAL TREAT TO EVEN SEE SUCH PRECIOUS ANTIQUE EARRINGS BUT WHAT'S EVEN MORE ASTONISHING IS THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE SOMETHING THAT'S TRULY PRICELESS AND AT A PRICE YOU DECIDE.
