A fabulous pair of vintage sterling filigree drop earrings with dangles at the bottom.
The style of filigree is cannetille which includes sculptural wire work, tiny beads and textured wire.
The long earrings are segmented in five separate sections- the top has a star or flower form with a domed center and raised wire in the round petals, the ear wires are soldered to the back.
The next triangular section uses textured wire and has three raised wire shapes with beads, the following two hanging crescents have domed filigree with beads.
The bottom crescent has seven wrapped wire dangles hanging from it. ALL dangles are present, in some of the photos one of the dangles is caught behind the earring.
The workmanship is fabulous and very precise, the dimensional design bold and beautiful.
Very well balanced, the earrings have great attention to detail.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, the ear wires have a hook so they close securely.
They measure 3.25" by 7/8", total weight is 16.7 grams.
Marked 925 for sterling on the back of both earrings.
A magnificent pair of dramatic cannetille filigree drop earrings meticulously hand crafted with great style and precision.
