“We all lose our heads when in love.”
Princess Turandot is utterly beautiful, but she rejects all earthly love. Refusing to marry and harboring a ferocious hatred of men, she proposes that her suitors solve three riddles or else have their heads cut off.Ninety-nine suitors have previously failed when a young, foreign prince desires to attempt his hand. Can he conquer the pride of the most beautiful woman in the kingdom? Will West and East meet, just as the sun and moon do?Princess Turadot, which owns to Puccini's opera, is an original tale which masterly blend between the purity of Oriental tradition and the explosive fun approach of commedia dell’arte.
These beautiful and intricate earrings have been first shaped, hammered and coiled with meters and meters of pure silver wire of different gauges.
The central part, which is laden with a selection of the most vibrantly sparkling gems in a spectrum of bright orange and yellow hues, is composed of white smooth freshwater pearls, tiny light yellow micro-faceted canelian beads, securely coiled to the silver frame, smooth and faceted silver beads and a genuine citrine faceted briolette, that is the heart of it.
Immediately below a great selection of huge (and believe me, they're truly stunning!!) briolettes: incredibly sophisticated smoky quartz beads with high luster and perfect faceting in onion cut and a golden yellow chalcedony faceted briolettes whose colour is truly vivid and vibrant!
Everything is topped with a large, sparkly and absolutely fabulous smoky quartz bead! It is an unbelievably stunning shade of intense smoky brown with superb step cut faceting of the highest quality for extra shimmer!
The flower silver plated earposts give them a special and original look!Measurements: these beauties are 3.14 inches (8 cm) long - earposts included (look at the last photo to have an idea of their measure! I have little hands, just like a ten-year old child!!!). Extremely lightweight and truly one-of-a-kind!
