The ancient Etruscans, a civilization that flourished in northern Italy until the first century BC, were known for their sophisticated metalwork. Granulation, where cast-metal pieces were painstakingly decorated with tiny spheres, was a specialty, and the best pieces were saved to accompany the wearer into the afterlife. These 18-karat-gold-vermeil earrings are reproductions of an ancient Etruscan design. Handcrafted in Cortona, in the heart of Tuscany, Italy.


Handcrafted in Cortona, Italy. 18-karat-gold-vermeil. 3/4"W x 1 1/8"L.


Lost-wax casting is a way to reproduce a sculpture or piece of jewelry directly from an original. First, an object is carved, usually from wax or clay. Then a mold is made from the model, using silicone, latex, or rubber with an outer layer of plaster, clay, or fiberglass. The model is then removed or melted away, leaving a mold that can be reused to create faithful replicas of the original.

          Stunning Earrings

          By Robrob

          from Los Angeles

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • beautiful gold
          • Intricate detail

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I've wanted earrings like this for ages, but they were always too expensive at several hundred dollars more, and much smaller for the price I could afford. These are a great find: perfect size and price!
