A detailed and beautiful pair of gold earrings. These earrings are made by the master goldsmith from Rome Andrea Cagnetti, known as Akelo, who uses techniques and tools that have been practised in goldsmithing for thousands of years. Drawing inspiration from Etruscan, Greek, and Roman jewellery, Akelo’s designs are imbued with both antiquity and modernity. These earrings are a wonderful example of Akelo’s work, featuring the techniques of filigree and fine granulation as well as ancient motifs such as the plaque and the acorn. Akelo’s work can be seen in the museum collections of The Vatican, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Newark Museum, and others.
