Pietra Dura Antique Earrings

Early 19th century antique lapis earrings crafted in the ancient art of Pietra Dura or hardstone inlays.

The rose stalk is hand cut from precious stones of lapis, coral and another green hardstone. While many antique pietra dura pieces are in green, white or black marble based stones, the use of lapis is an Etruscan revival influence. The twirled rope cameo setting is another Etruscan flavour.

This pair of lapis Pietra Dura is a fine and uncommon instance of using an ‘other’ material in a traditional art form. The choice of the stone and motif combination means this miniature artwork goes beyond just ‘earrings’ into a cherished keepsake.

The oval cameos are 15mm long and 12mm wide. The earrings come to about 2.5cm long.

The Pietra Dura mosaic are set into 9k earrings during the Edwardian period. The mosaic is way older!
