Reminiscent of the fabulous cannetille gold work from the Georgian period, local artisans from a small Mexican village created these lacy, crescent shaped pierced earrings using light blue seed pearls, white cultured pearls, and filigree of 14k tested yellow gold.
Although very ornate, these earrings are very lightweight and perfect for extended hours of wear. These earrings were worn by women from Oaxaca as traditional pieces for weddings and special ceremonies. Circa early 1900's.
Earrings measure 1 7/8" inches tall X 1.25" inches wide. They weigh approximately 7 grams. Provenance, New Zealand and Westchester, New York estate. Excellent condition.
