21st Century 9 Karat Rose Gold and Diamond Square Cesellato Earrings

$830.17

About

Modern-looking in their simplicity and yet 600-odd years in the making, these 9-karat rose gold and blackened .925 silver earrings are produced using an ancient Albanian technique that was brought to Palermo, Sicily in the fifteenth century. Carefully selected, rose-cut diamonds, totalling 1.75-carats, are hand-chiselled into the very slightly domed blackened silver top of each earring. Lever-backed, these square earrings are 12.30 millimetres across, and hang approximately 19 millimetres long. Together they weigh 6 grams. This collection represents an art form that reflects the rich history of Sicily. In the fifteenth century, Albanian immigrants arrived in Palermo, bringing with them a unique method of jewellery-making which has become known as “cesellato”. Their descendants preserved the method over the next 600-odd years, merging it with new materials, fashions and techniques which arrived following each new invasion of the southern Italian island. What exists today is an ancient method infused with diverse Looking for a set? This collection has several earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets that all work together beautifully.

About the Maker

FANCS V by Simona Elia

Our company is the result of a great dream of love. Starting with only my husband, Natale and myself, our Vitale family has grown to include our three beautiful children. Our family life in Sicily is the core of our creative inspiration and my joy to share: the jewels Natale and I create represent the spirit of love which lives within our past, present and indeed our future. Just as a family's love makes the souls of its members' more vibrant and more beautiful, so do we believe in the values of our company and our products. These values and dreams we share emerge from our studio as objects of art and seduction, carrying our happiness with them, and a promise of quality and value. ~ Simona Elia (Palermo, Sicily) FANCS V by Simona Elia: Fertile Creativity Sculptor and designer Simona Elia's work marries essential lines with exquisite taste. Her work is rooted in the observation of natural, human, faunal and floral forms--for nature is the original teacher of the creation of beauty--and informed by a vigilant awareness of the past. Simona's contemporary jewels are for modern men and women. Every detail is produced using the finest precious materials and crafted with expertise and rigorous execution by hand, using traditional artisanal methods, in combination with the most modern machines on the market, to achieve an exquisite Italian product from the heart of Sicily. These are classics with modern panache, singular yet personal; they distinguish the wearer.
