Description
These delicate yet dramatic earrings echo a style that was first fashionable at the height of the Byzantine Empire. Blending gleaming gold with royal purple garnets, they exude a timeless beauty. Their tiny crosses were in vogue at the court of Constantinople, which considered itself the strongest bastion of the Christian faith. It is easy to imagine 'such jewels in the ears of an aristocratic Byzantine beauty. The woman who wears them today, whatever her origins, is certain to win the admiring stares of all who see her. With a deep appreciation for the past yet somehow ahead of her time, she will set trends, not follow them. - (FJ.4549)
