It was 1906 in the tiny Italian seaport of Trani. The audience took their seats for a performance of Verdi's "Rigoletto." But as soon as the young singer opened her mouth, every one of them realized they were listening to opera history. Amelita Galli-Curci's voice was described as "miraculous" and to this day she is considered one of the greatest sopranos who ever lived. Her specialty was 'coloratura,' making elaborate vocal melodies sound effortless and angelic. Great jewelry designers have the same talent. Instead of sweet sounds, they work in three dimensions.
Our Amelita Earrings are classical compositions in their own right. Each gold-finished flourish supports a quintet of shimmering white cultured pearls. Hinged clips keep each earring in place. Wear them out to add elegance to any evening and you'll be guaranteed a standing ovation.
