Forget-Me-Not

Enamelled earrings with pearls in silver & gold, around 1890/2021

from time to time we come across pieces of jewellery that began their lives in a different form than they present themselves today. As fashionable accessories, the transformation of precious pieces of jewelry is in the nature of things, because a valuable object is not thrown away when its form has become unfashionable. That is why it is common practice for pieces of jewellery to be personalised and adapted by their respective wearers - and even today the field of "re-design" is one of the most important tasks of goldsmiths worldwide. A Russian enamel bracelet from around 1890 has also undergone a functional transformation. The present earrings were made from parts of this bracelet, which came to us incomplete. In our workshop, the enamelled links of the bracelet, which are colored in forget-me-not blue, were reworked into these earrings in order to give the old goldsmith's work a new effect. Our goldsmith added a teardrop-shaped pearl with a rosy luster to each of the antique elements, as well as earwires made of high karat gold. The historical parts make the earrings unique pieces that combine old and new and have now taken on a new life.
