Autumn leaves

Elegant earrings with pearls & diamonds in gold, around 1890/2021

"The small but intense pleasure of walking through dry leaves and kicking them up as you go... they rustle, they bristle, they crackle..." (Vita Sackville-West: "Walking through leaves") You know that feeling when it starts to get colder outside and you head out to enjoy autumn? When you dress warmly and go out into nature, you feel the last rays of the sun and the crackling of the branches under your shoes, the rustling of the leaves and the whistling of the wind? This pair of earrings has that comforting feeling as its theme and captures the gentle feeling of nature beautifully. On gold hoops, we see a feathered leaf each, openworked and set all over with diamonds. Large drop-shaped cultured pearls shimmer on them. With every movement, the pendants take on an elegant swing and allow the diamonds to sparkle once again. Our goldsmith has crafted this pair from antique elements. The small leaves of the fronts were part of a tiara of the years around 1890, which came to us incomplete. Sparkling old-cut diamonds and smaller rose-cut diamonds set the small leaves, which we have fitted with new hinged bristles of high-carat gold and a pearl in each case. In this way, they offer a secure hold on the ear.
