Provenance

UK art market

This elegant and wearable pair of gold Indian earrings is enamelled on their backs with Mughal-inspired floral motifs, and are set with foil-backed flat diamonds on their fronts.

Suspended from each is a ball in gold, each set with more than 20 further diamonds. Three pearls are suspended form each of these (it is possible, that a fourth pearl might have been suspended from the backs of the balls but no longer is present).

Pearls decorate the sides of the main body of each earring as well.

The earrings are fitted with gold ‘fish hooks’ for pierced ears.

The earrings are stable and wearable.
