CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
They are made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my workshop.
These etched earrings are inspired by a baroque style pattern, evoking the splendor of the royal court of France during the Renaissance. They remind me of the elegant women of the royal court, the game of contenders and favorites.
Therefore, I chose to call these earrings in stylized floral pattern: Montespan. It comes from a courtesan of King Louis XIV, at the disturbing story: Madame de Montespan or Marquise de Montespan. She had seven children of the king himself.
They are artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deep part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pairs with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
They measure 3.5cm long.
The ear wires are also hand forged by myself in sterling silver.
You have the possibility of changing the classical sterling silver eawires by sterling silver clips for non pierced ears.
Please check the last photo to see the clips or you can also check our page about non pierced ears.
