Mandarin Garnet Cabochons in 18kt Engraved Earrings, Handmade in Italy
The Bianca Earrings make a lovely frame for any gem, and this version in large Mandarin cabochon are extraordinary. These stones are significantly cleaner than one might expect in a large spessartite cabochon, and they show the bright "Fanta Soda Orange" which is the true color for Mandarin Garnet. These cabs weigh 13.55ct total.
Every visible surface of the Bianca earrings is finished with richly detailed Florentine engraving, and the backs of these earrings are as gorgeous as the front. This earring measures approximately 17 x 14mm, and the posts are set "just north" of the center.
This piece of jewelry was hand-fabricated and hand-engraved by goldsmiths in Florence, Italy. Florentine Engraving is an Old World jewelry making technique and style that has been synonymous with the city of Florence since the 15th Century.
