      • Product Description:

        The archaeological discoveries of the 19th century led to a greater understanding of ancient jewellery. For the first time, experts could collect, study and publish works on these intricate gold pieces.Intellectuals particularly admired archaeological-style jewellery, often closely copied from surviving finds, from around 1860 until at least the1880s.

        Inspired by a stud in granulated gold open work in the Etruscan style held in the V&A's collections, originally made by Carlo Giuliano (1831-95), London, about 1865-70Please note: For reasons of hygiene we are unable to accept the return of pierced jewellery.

        Fashioned in the style of a West European design dating from 1835-40, these earrings consist of turquoise and gold-plated bell-shaped tassels, which move individually with the wearer.

        This range of costume jewellery takes its inspiration from star objects in the V&A's jewellery gallery, translating the richness and diversity of the museum's collections into wearable, original pieces.
