Antique Early 20th Century Micromosaic 14k Gold Pendant Earrings
Detailed antique micromosaic pendant earrings made in 14k carat gold circa 1900. These earrings have beautiful length and movement. Very modern feeling for such an antique earring. The blue, red and white micro mosaic is set to depict colored flowers. The earring is in excellent condition with all the mosaic intact. Twisted gold "V" suspend small pendant micromosaic flowers. Micromosaic jewelry became popular when 19th century tourists flocked to Italy on Grand Tours, and jewelry emulated the intricate tile work that was seen there. These earrings are playful and young. They are 2.25 inches long and 1 inch wide.
