Dainty Antique Jhumka Canatille Drop Earrings in High Carat Gold
* * SOLD * *
An antique pair of canatille, jhumka drop earrings, made in high carat yellow gold, whose many twisted, gold ribbons quiver (in the most heartbreaking manner), from where they hang beneath each earring's central bell-shaped form. This ornate "bell" is decorated with exquisitely miniature wirework flowers, and a series of small medallions that have been constructed from tightly spiraled wire. A further pendant form, like a bell's tongue, hangs inside the bell, behind the curling ribbons. Earwires are shepherd's hooks. Jhumka is a traditional Indian form. These earrings are lightweight and very kinetic— the slightest movement sets them aquiver!
