The Etruscans were an ancient people who settled and thrived in the area that would later be called Rome. In the nineteenth century, a series of Etruscan tombs were opened, and the beautiful gold-work found within captured the imagination of the Victorian public. These earrings are a testament to the "modern" obsession with ancient jewelry.

Made of 14K yellow gold, these 19th century earrings have a 1.5" long drop and weigh a combined total of 5.8g -- which means they're so light you'd likely forget you were wearing them, were it not for the countless looks of admiration from looky loos!

CARE & MAINTENANCE

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your jewelry will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan.

We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one!
