A beautiful pair of mid-1800s extra-fine pietra dura earrings. The quality of this pietra dura marbling is fantastic, particularly in conjunction with its incredible handmade settings which was fabricated in a congruent floral motif of curling golden vines and chased leaves. The marbling work is charming, 2 colorful flowers set on a black backdrop. One can marvel endlessly at the ability of an artisan to pick stones with a natural splendor of colors and seamlessly set them in this pretty depiction. There is not a chip or crack in any of the hand-selected marble bits that comprise these two plaques measuring 0.6 inches in diameter. The overall diameter of the drop measures 0.85 inches. From the top of the bail to the bottom of the drop measuring 1.65 inches.
