The Grand Period, 1860-1885, was a time of archaeological discoveries fostering a passionate revival of Egyptian, Classical Greek, and Etruscan styles which found its way to most jewelry of the period. This lovely jewelry suite is comprised of a brooch/pendant and earrings. The overall design features delicate surface wiring, filigree work and granulation along with eight beautiful oval cabochon Pyrope (garnet family) stones of a fiery deep red color in a variety of sizes. A beautiful example of the jewelry desired during those times. Post backs.
