We distinguish ourselves by sourcing unusual, beautifully crafted pieces of jewellery and these were love at first sight. Designed and manufactured in Italy, these statement earrings were unlike anything we had seen- the attention to detail and craft was extraordinary. Although the enamelled bird was completely charming, we were particularly enchanted by the tiny pearl “eggs” in the nest.
These extraordinary Gold Bird Cage Earrings feature diamond, onyx and peridot.
The cage is crafted from 9ct yellow gold and is suspended from a shepherd’s hook. Below the hook, a heart motif featuring pavé set diamonds is accented with a millegrain setting. Millegrain, which translates as “a thousand grains”, is a technique popularised around the turn of the twentieth century and creates a succession of fine beads along the edge of the metal setting. It is produced by rolling a small wheel along the surface and is not only decorative, but also helps to secure gemstones.
A small, acid-green faceted peridot bead appears above a diamond-set millegrain star, and the final polished bead is black onyx.
Encased within the cage, an enamelled bird rests on a perch hovering over the nest, which houses tiny seed pearl “eggs”.
