Description

Sublime pair of 19th century Savoyard hoop earrings in 18 carat gold, feminine, light and elegant. A typical period jewellery piece, to be adopted without further delay as a new style signature. Please note that despite restoration and polishing, this old piece, being hollow, has surface irregularities (visible in the photo).

Eagle hallmark.
This unique piece had a previous life in France.

The story: The Savoyards are so called in reference to the women of the Savoy mountains who once wore them. Also known as Tarentaises or Savoy Creoles, they are now very successful in the jewellery industry, thanks in particular to the gypsy women who adopted them.
