Sensual Garnet Paste Earrings
The theme during the Aesthetic Movement became “art for art’s sake,” with the acceptance of the outward beauty of an object rather than the search for its deeper meaning. The movement was a departure from the Victorian penchant for sentimental works.
In 10k solid gold, this American pair is particularly lively, blooming on the wearer's ear with a subtle sheen and textured gold. Extremely light weighing 3.5 grams, this is a perfect addition to any collection.
