Retro 14kt Gold Cannetille Wirework Earrings
A beautiful and elaborate pair of cannetille earrings from the Retro (ca1930) period! These outstanding earrings are made of vibrant 14kt yellow gold and are crafted with fine cannetille wirework. Each earring is comprised of a three-dimensional link that is intricately layered and hangs from a decorative surmount. Delicate beadwork, twisted rope wirework, and swirled floral accents decorate the earrings and fringed accents dangle freely from the bottom. The surmounts have a complimentary cannetille design, and on the back of each topper is a gold European back wire, which fastens in the front. A unusual and exquisitely crafted pair of earrings, they are a magnificent example of cannetille work. They would be perfect everyday earrings and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2 1/8" long, measures 5/8" at the widest point and has a depth of 1/4" at the thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold wirework and the European backs are secure and in good working condition.
