18K Plique-a-Jour and Diamond Hoop Earrings


Like a wearable work of art, these vintage hoop earrings glow like a like tiny stained glass windows. Crafted in 18k yellow gold and enamel, these delightful, double-sided  plique-a-jour earrings display royal blue chrysanthemums centered with twinkling diamonds that appear to float on a powder blue ground. 1 7/16" wide by 1 11/16" long. 

Plique-a-jour, French for "Light of Day", is one of the most challenging of the enameling techniques. Master craftsmen fill vibrant crystalline enamels into delicate unbacked cells then fire them several times. This process allows light to pass through, just like stained-glass.
