Aphrodite Enamel Huggie Earrings
Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of love and beauty and was also widely worshipped as a goddess of the sea, leading to the popular artistic representations of her being portrayed in the sea or surrounded by seashells.
One such representation is Francois Boucher’s 1740 painting Triumph of Venus (Venus is the Roman equivalent of Aphrodite).
The Aphrodite earrings feature 24K gold plated brass lever back huggie hoops and enamel and metal gold shell charms.
The huggie hoops measure 12 x 14 mm and the shell enamel charms measure approx. 10 x 10 mm.
The Baroque & Lovin It Collection is inspired by the Late Baroque/Rococo artistic period that became popular in the latter years of the 18th century. This style can be easily recognised in architecture and interiors by the abundant usage of gold and white, undulating lines and decorative shells and flowers. In paintings you will notice heavy use of pastel colours, sensuous fabrics and floral motifs. The scenes or subject matters will usually carry an overarching sense of frivolity and idyllic beauty.
