Gold filigree & Persian Gulf seed pearl earrings
Gold filigree & Persian Gulf seed pearl earrings
C.1900 Handmade 10kt gold filigree and natural Persian Gulf seed pearl earrings. The design of these earrings is incredibly rare for this genre of highly collectable Mexican jewelry from Oaxaca. The style is heavily influenced by the styles originating in the Arabian Peninsula moving west. This beautiful filigree work was taught to Mexican artisans by Spanish fryers from Salamanca. Many fryers from Spain opened a myriad of technique schools during this time. The materials commonly used for these pieces came off the Manila Galleon trading ships. These earrings are incredibly rare and sought after and are considered museum quality. The original "back to front" closures have been replaced with 14kt gold wires for ease of wear. (3 1/2" long)
