American Gilded Age Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Our handsome drop earrings feature natural jasper stones and nod to the decorative ornament on an American side chair (ca. 1870) in The Met collection. Herter Brothers (German, active New York, 1864-1906), one of New York’s premier cabinetmaking firms, produced this magnificent chair for the wealthy industrialist William H. Vanderbilt. Notable among its luxurious details are the turned legs and ionic capitals, as well as the graceful swan forms at the crest rails.
