At the foot of Mount Vesuvius, just 10 miles south of Naples, lies the fishing town of Torre del Greco. Long known for their carved shell cameos, Torre del Greco jewelers also work with gold and gems, using time-honored techniques such as lost-wax casting. In lost-wax casting, a jeweler carves his or her design in wax, and then forms a mold around the model. When molten metal is poured into the mold, the wax melts away, leaving a perfect reproduction of the original model.


These Renaissance-inspired earrings are handmade in Torre del Greco using this ancient method. Choose tiny sapphires surrounded by pearls, or pearls encircled by soft pink rubies. Each design is framed in 18-karat pink gold-plated sterling silver.


Handcrafted in Torre del Greco, Italy. 18-karat pink gold-plated sterling silver. Choose sapphire and pearl, or pearl and ruby. 7/8"L x 1/2"W. French hook with clasp closure.

Renaissance meets Art Nouveau in these pearl and gemstone earrings. Art Nouveau flourished in Europe during the turn of the 20th century. Its streamlined, geometric shapes influenced everything from advertising to architecture, furniture to fashion. In Rome, an architect named Gino Coppede designed an entire neighborhood in the Art Nouveau style, right down to the street lamps. The "Quartiere Coppede" still looks much as it did when the architect died in 1927.
