This earring is made for a princess. All of us are and we know it. Inspired by the characteristics of the late baroque and rococo art and architecture phase, with its seashell baroque pearl and shell motif cast in brass and polished in gold. This special pair makes for a lovely statement piece and collector's piece.
"Rococo is a period rather than a specific style. Often this 18th-century era is called "the Rococo," a time period roughly beginning with the 1715 death of France's Sun King, Louis XIV, until the French Revolution in 1789. It was France's Pre-Revolutionary time of growing secularism and continued growth of what became known as the bourgeoisie or middle class. Patrons of the arts were not exclusively royalty and aristocrats, so artists and craftsmen were able to market to a wider audience of middle-class consumers. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) composed not only for Austrian royalty but also for the public."
