Georgian era Day and Night Gold Cannetille Earrings

Early 19th Century gold torpedo shaped earrings. Creating cannetille work is a time-intensive process that involves stretching gold into thin threads and coiling the threads into elaborate and intricate designs. Day and Night design allows the tops to be worn alone.  English in origin. Circa 1820. 

 Light in weight. Wonderful condition. 

Back to front style earrings. 2.50" in drop length.
