Lovely Bourbon earrings in low grade gold (14 kt), Sicily, first half of the 19th century.

Fine pair of pendant earrings from Bourbon Sicily, with Neapolitan style hook clasp, first half of the 19th century, in low grade gold, with very fine workmanship featuring leaves and scrollwork engraved in relief, and embellished with two small turquoises. Very refined and eye-catching, measuring 5 x 1.8 cm.
In very good condition despite their age.

Their beauty is evinced from the photo; please take a good look at the photo gallery.

Total weight: 8 g.

Bourbon jewellery is characterised by very fine workmanship, despite the not very high value of the materials used. The new manufacturing techniques of the period allowed the creation of jewellery in thin metal foil that was cut and embossed, thus producing items of jewellery with a limited quantity of gold, but with a very vivacious and opulent look thanks to the workmanship and to the use of stones and especially of patterns of small pearls characteristic of the Bourbon era.

Usually the quality of the gold is never very high, however it is not always easy to determine the fineness of Bourbon era items of jewellery, because every goldsmith employed his personal 'recipe' for the gold. Notwithstanding this, we come across very rare and precious items of jewellery, which deserve to be worn with pride.

    buona sera ho visto il suo feedbak, posso capire cosa è successo?, può allegare una foto, poi anziché scrivere una brutta recensione perché non mi ha contattato prima?
    perchè mandare un feedback negativo quando ci sono mille possibilità di risolvere i problemi, ma poi per un acquisto di poco conto lei decide la sorte di un venditore? sa cosa significa per noi che lavoriamo sodo e onestamente?

    Gentile signora, prima di lasciare un feedback negativo perché non mi ha contattato? Se lei non è soddisfatta del suo ordine possiamo sempre annullare la vendita lei verrà rimborsata.
    Ad ogni modo gli aloni di cui lei parla sono aloni di cassa, o da cassetto, che possono formarsi per via della conservazione, per quanto riguarda la stiratura è normale che nella spedizione venga un po sgualcita.
    ripeto possiamo annullare la vendita se non soddisfatta.

  • Item description untruthful. Seller very difficult to work with despite many opportunities for correction/resolution. Would stay away from any future business.
