Enjoy subtle style with hand-pressed German intaglios. Jet is carved with a classic profile, and delicate detailing on the earrings’ frames highlight the intricate beauty of the carving. Carved images used for personal adornment have cast a romantic spell over people's imaginations for thousands of years. Folklore relates cameos' mystic capacity to attract health and good fortune. When the artist carves into the stone to hollow out a recessed image, the piece is called an intaglio. Originally, intaglios had a practical as well as decorative purpose. When brushed with ink or wax, they could be used as a seal or identifying stamp to mark a letter or document.

Medium size earring measures 1 inch by 1/2 inch.

Extasia designs jewelry that combines classic beauty and old world craftsmanship with current fashion trends. Their glass cameos and intaglios are meticulously detailed, handmade in Europe by a small number of artisans using 100 year old techniques.
