Carlos Gutierrez Kashmir Sapphire Crystal Pearl GUSANO Vintage Finish 925 Oaxaca Earrings

150.00

These Spanish Colonial Style earrings are made in the"Gusano" style of Oaxaca, Mexico and date back to the 1800s. "Gusano" means "worm", and refers to the undulating curved shape of the earring's body,.They are one of Oaxaca's traditional & main styles..

The color has the most amazing blue & is beyond beautiful!! The blue is so deep & rich & very much like the blue in a Peacock.

The Kashmir Blue Sapphire crystals,with that added feminine touch of pearls are sewn & set in the center of a vintage style oxidized sterling filigree wire..Right outside the pearls is a "Diamond Cut" sterling wire, that tends to give them a slight "diamond" facet that will sparkle when the light or sun hit them..

They are dainty & the fineness of the wire,dictates their wear-ability & comfort.The wire work is precise & you see every part of the circular formations that make the design,with no excess solder, that would make them a visual mess!!

Gusanos are given a curvature that starts right where the top of the pearls start.. Pearl dangles finalize the design..They have a shepherds hook that goes down about 2/3rds.of the way down the back,so it's quite long.There is a catch for the wire to keep the wire closed.
