Etruscan Revival was inspired by the excavation of the Greek and Roman ruins during the mid-Victorian era. The artifacts date back to the 7th - 3rd centuries B.C. and the world was enamored with these treasures. They inspired art, architecture, jewelry and design.

It was used for the eyebrows on the mask of King Tutankhamun and ground to make the finest and most expensive paint pigment, Ultramarine, used by all the Renaissance and Baroque painters. These collectable earrings perfectly encapsulate the Etruscan Revival movement.

top cabochon is 3/8" in diameter, while the bottom stone is 3/4"in diameter.
