Antique Bourbon Era Large Hoop "Palombelle" Earrings - 12k

Regular price $2,300.00 CAD Sale

These beautiful and easy to wear amuletic Bourbon Era earrings hail from Abruzzo circa early 1800s, likely from Agnone, Scanno or Pescocostanzo.

A classic hollow hoop is embellished with a dangling chain, the "Palombelle" style, whose jingling was meant to ward off bad luck and gossip. Perfectly effortless Italian-girl style with meaning.

These earrings have a combined weight of 6.8g and measure approximately 44.6mm wide by 50mm tall (not including the top hoop). Crafted in 12-14k solid gold, they close securely. Hallmarked on wires, wear commensurate with age and use.  You will receive the pictured earrings.
