Antique Georgian Mighty Gold Acorn Dangle Earrings

These absolutely breathtaking antique earrings from the Georgian era are fabulously dramatic and surprisingly lightweight. Hollow in construction and approximately 2.875" x 0.625" in, these elegant earrings feature meticulous filigree and repoussé gold work seldom seen in modern jewelry-making. Made from both 18K and 14K yellow gold and stamped “Metropoli,” the earrings were made circa 1830-1840, presumably in Italy (as best as we can tell).  Throughout history, the acorn - an offshoot of the mighty oak - has been a symbol of potential, life force and fertility.

These acorn earrings are brimming with unbelievable details and remarkable craftsmanship. The surmount has an acorn cupule (cup) embellished with cross-hatched engravings and a lower nut with a smooth polished surface. A brace or cluster of gold filigree leaves forms a canopy, which shelters the nut. The lower dangle is a cluster of five acorns shielded with a series of four filigree gold leaves.

Gleem & Co. co-found Casey says: I cannot believe these are from the Georgian era. The craftsmanship has certainly held up the test of time, never mind the style, which could be on the runway today. I love these.

The earrings have pierced hook backings and are in very good condition, showing minor signs of wear.
