Renaissance meets Art Nouveau in these pearl and gemstone earrings. Art Nouveau flourished in Europe during the turn of the 20th century. Its nature-inspired 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.
These faceted gem earrings are inspired by the Art Nouveau belief that art should be a way of life. Two pairs of "tiles" are inlaid with pearls and either ruby, emerald, or sapphire. Made with 18-karat pink gold-plated sterling silver.
