Vintage Italian Micro Mosaic Earrings.
Set in brass with screwback closures, these lovely little micro mosaic rounds are perfect when you want a little understated vintage color and style. They measure 5/8" or 15mm in diameter and are set in brass.
I am a fan of all miniature works of art, when it comes to jewelry. Great time and care is taken with each piece. The Italians used tiny glass pieces to form these designs and many times the intricacy is only seen under close inspection, as it is meant to be. The overall purpose of mosaics is to capture the image as a whole. Micro Mosaics were very popular from the mid 19th century to the mid 20th century.
The screwback clasp, dates these to the earlier half of the 20th century.
