The flat graduated fringe is so rare to find. We love the geometric enamel setting that beautifully encloses six lustrous pearls on each earring and the subtle Etruscan Revival style twist braid adding texture to the earring tops. There is a simplicity to these earrings that speaks volumes to the Greco Roman influence, which took center stage in jewelry design of the 1870’s. We are very excited to bring these beautiful earrings to market.
