Description
Spectacular pair of classical revival earrings in the Roman style, composed of 22 karat gold set with genuine hematite, amethyst, pearls, and lapis lazuli.

Using materials favored by ancient artisans, these dramatic earrings faithfully echo roman prototypes. Throughout history, beautiful women have enhanced their looks with the gleam of gold and precious gems. The Roman aristocracy especially favored earrings that dangled and moved with the wearer's head. It is easy to imagine these glorious jewels in the ears of an empress, catching the light as she rode by in triumph. The gems that add their rich colors to these jewels were extremely popular in the Roman Empire, valued both for their beauty and for their amuletic powers. The little golden figures that dangle at the center represent Eros, the god of love. Whoever wears these exciting earrings today will be lucky in all affairs of the heart. With these jewels, she is certain to steal more than one.
