Even if you have never been to Italy, you have probably heard of the Medici family. They were one of the most powerful families not just in Italy, but of the Renaissance. They were bankers who, starting from nothing, became one of the noblest families by having, not just one, but three popes as well as two queens of France in their legacy.
As one of the richest family of their times, the Medici proved their wealth with their jewelry, seeking out the best metal craftsmen in Italy. Their jewelry was not only beautiful but displayed mastery of technique, often featuring beautiful brushed textures upon the precious metals.
Our Florentine Earrings draw inspiration from the exquisitely textured jewelry of the Medici family. Here, gold-covered sterling silver is brushed into sophisticated webs and punctuated with sparkling white stones. You can find pieces like these at big name designer retailers priced ridiculously high. Even the Medici family would be taken aback. Instead with the Florentine Earrings, you can indulge luxe Italian Renaissance style without laying a finger on your fortune.
