Earrings: From Antiquity to the Present by Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 224 pages. Publisher: Thames and ... moreHudson; 1990) ISBN: 0500014930. There is an inexplicable magic about earrings. Unmatched by any other kind of jewelry. Uniquely, they move with a life of their own, voluptuous yet pure, cold yet provocative. Earrings have been worn since prehistoric times; ancient civilizations offered earrings to their goddesses, and today they remain the most demanding and rewarding exercises of the jeweler's art. Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi, both experts from Sotheby's, are themselves under the spell of earrings, and their erudition does not disguise that this book is as much a romance as a fine piece of art-historical research. The authors relate how the fashion of wearing precious earrings spread from ancient Egypt to the Classical Greek and Roman worlds to Byzantium. Techniques in the cutting of gemstones and diamonds. Perfected in the eighteenth century, allowed earring design to evolve towards its most stylish and glamorous. Extraordinary and imaginative revivals of Classical and Roman motifs are here. The opulence of exquisitely crafted creations of gold and precious stones, the bold lines of Art Deco, and a rich proliferation of modern designs, from the most traditional to the most innovative, created by leading European and American designers. The book covers every period and style up to the present. The great names among designers and international jewelry houses; Cartier. Boucheron, Mellerio, Van Cleef& Arpels, Verdura, Andrew Grima, Merina B. David Webb, Harry Winston, Graff and Bulgari, are all represented in dazzling displays of precious and semi-precious earrings. Illustrations range from Rococo flowers and long, heavy girondoles thick with diamonds and emeralds to chaste Neoclassical disks and the delicate nodding sprays of the late nineteenth century. A wide-ranging study that will be a rich source of inspiration and delight for collectors,
