Classical Rome comes to the 20th century with these beautiful hand-etched intaglio glass studs. And what better way to bring in the summer than with a smiling sun, hand etched onto the gemstone. Created in the style of Roman treasure, they have a regal and powerful presence.
Made from sterling silver with 18ct gold plate or rhodium plate you can choose either a warming gold or cooling silver finish. This is a retro style that is making a serious comeback and the twist at the back allows you to wear them with any of our ovals, detachable pearls or even other intaglio detachable's for a seriously stylish - and great variety - of different looks!
Intaglio jewellery is the ancient art of carving images into a stone or precious metal. It has been popular throughout history and can be found in ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman arts. It was revived during the Italian Renaissance and again in 18th and 19th century Europe. We are seeing a huge surge in its popularity now and we just adore it! The full length of the earring is just under 30mm high by 22mm wide. The pearls on their own are £22 and the intaglio studs are £65 each.
