Bow-shaped earrings

The artefact

These prized and elegant bow-shaped earrings resume, with technical virtuosity and stylistic fidelity, a typical design of the goldsmith tradition of the island, in particular of the Campidano area around Cagliari. Realised according to the fret worked filigree technique with numerous baroque pearls and engraved leaf motifs, it expresses this goldsmith's technical skill and mastery.
