A wonderful pair of earrings. These earrings, named Miram by the master goldsmith from Rome Andrea Cagnetti, known as Akelo, use 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 feature delicate filigree work applied to rosettes, culminating in acorn-shaped ovals. Akelo’s work can be seen in the museum collections of The Vatican, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Newark Museum, and others.
