CARLOS GUTIERREZ Kashmir Sapphire Crystal & Pearls Tehuana El Eme-Yalalag Filigree Earrings

625.00

This very abstract style of earring is known to be worn by "Tehuana"women (Juchiteca) of Oaxaca,which is the style/region that Frida Kahlo made so popular & put on the map for their costumes & jewelry.It's jewelry that is from Oaxaca such as these,that is actually derived from 18th century Spanish & French influences.

Their shape & style are a cross between the  Oaxaca's"El Eme"(M) earring the Yalalag Cross(If not familiar,please Google)..Only with these,they are dripping with 3 pear shaped filigree drops & what looks exactly like Kashmir Sapphires! The blue is like no other blue,especially when you hold them to the light,since the backs are left open..The pavilion of the stone is deep & reaches outside the base on the back.They are lab created crystals & the color is so deep & breathtakingly mesmerizing! They are high quality crystals,that hold the same make up as the real deal,but without the cost.

Taking approximately 3 days to make,the base is made from scratch & the filigree being made of super fine sterling wire.The wire has a circular pattern & not once, do you see the pattern losing form.Surrounding the pearls,Carlos added a 'diamond cut" technique,that will sparkle when the light or sun hits them.Because the wire is so delicate,this is what allows them to be more 'wearable' & even though they are a larger size,they are of a lighter weight.(weights below)
