Antique Spanish Colonial Pearl Fringe Filigree Hoop Earrings in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A powerfully romantic pair of Spanish colonial filigree crescent earrings, dating to the early 1800s. Made in yellow gold, with a fringe of natural, creamy, golden pearls, these substantial hoops feature the most precisely executed, nested, spiraling wirework and applied granulation— curls, paisleys, and and spirals abound! The ear wires are hand-formed, back-to-front threaders, with miraculous old hinges and a discreet ball-shaped catch. Metal tests high carat and is guaranteed to be at least 18k. These earrings are grand in scale, and the pearl fringe has a lovely swinging movement.
