Austo Hungarian Natural Sapphire & Pearl Earrings, circa 1910
A bold and decorative pair of Austro Hungarian earrings, featuring an estimated total of 6.50 carat of natural, unenhanced blue sapphire and natural seed and one undrilled button pearl. A thrilling and high end example of the neo-renaissance / renaissance-revival that swept through mainland Europe at the end of the 19th century. Intricate, opulent and bold – but surprisingly amenable to everyday wear.
Also in stock is the matching necklace.
