La Belle Epoque, occurring during the era of the Third French Republic (Beginning 1870), was a period characterized by optimism, peace at home and in Europe, new technology and scientific discoveries. The peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition. The Belle Époque was named, in retrospect, when it began to be considered a golden age in contrast to the horrors of World War I.

Most beautiful earrings created from large vintage hand-gilded brass tulip caps, vintage pale lavender faceted glass crystal findings, and a pair of raw garnet gemstones. The garnets cast lovely reds when light passes through. Patina and metal leaf have been sealed. Hand-forged rustic ear wires.

One of a kind, ready to ship.
