Description
Reflecting the light from behind, these beautiful intaglio earrings demonstrate the beautiful work of the neo-classical period. Quiet and careful precision account for the extensive detail within the intaglio. No contour is left out, expressing true artistry and craftsmanship. Each earring shows the profile of a young woman with distinctly classical Roman features. Both have their hair tied to the back, exposing the delicate neck and soft jaw line. The color adds a subtlety to the carving, making the earrings all the more beautiful. - (FJ.5995)
