Description
Exquisite pair of classical revival earrings in the Hellenistic style composed of almost pure gold set with genuine garnets.

The Hellenistic age was distinguished by its luxury and opulence. In the wake of the extensive conquests of Alexander the great, classical Greek culture blended freely with the older artistic traditions of the east. In jewelry, this led to a dramatic style which successfully combined rich materials with a balance of form, elegant proportion and design. These magnificent earrings, a splendid example of this type of artistry, might have graced a Seleucid queen or a Ptolemaic princess. Their balanced symmetry gives them a sense of regal dignity. At the same time, an elegant proportion of fine design detail heightens their visual appeal. The woman who wears these stunning earrings will most certainly feel both regal and elegant, her sensitivity and fascination with the ancient past reaching to her heartfelt core.
