Art Deco Sterling Blue + Green Guilloché Enamel Heart Earrings
Guilloché (usually "Guilloche" in English) is an engraving technique in which a very precise, intricate pattern is mechanically etched into an underlying material with very fine detail. Most commonly, the Guilloche surface was then enameled and the repetitive, intricate design would show through the colorful enamel.
A unique pair of Guilloché heart earrings from the Art Deco (ca1930s) era! These charming are crafted in sterling silver, and feature a colorful enameled surface. One of the hearts is topped in bright blue enamel, while the other is enameled in vibrant green. The hearts have a double-sided design, with the translucent enamel covering the engraved "strawberry seed" Guilloché pattern below. Each heart dangles freely below a sterling ball topper and simple earring wire. When worn, the earrings frame the face nicely, and are comfortably lightweight. A lovely example of Guilloché jewelry, these stylish antique earrings add a fun pop of color to any outfit!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1 1/2" in total length, including the wires. The enameled hearts measure 3/4" tall and wide, and are about 3/16" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or to the Guilloché enamel design. The earring wires are secure and in good working condition.
