22 Karat Yellow Gold Diamond and Pearl Drop Earring with Multi-Color Enamel Work
This mesmerizing Mughal era hand-made polki diamond and pearl long earring is exquisite. The top part of the earring is formed of perfectly cut special shape flat polki diamond solitaires set in gold bezel setting surround the bigger center canine shape polki solitaire diamond in bezel setting. The polki diamonds together form a 6-motif flower with a small addition of round polki diamond adjoining the bottom polki to add more depth and curve to the flower pattern, making it more of a traditional Indian heritage floral design. The outer gold on the earring gallery is covered with a thin line of green enamel work, making them look more magical.
The bottom half of the earring is formed by a solitaire south sea round pearl drop held securely by a small red round bead and a gold cap of blush red enamel on top and a small red round bead at the bottom. The top and bottom parts are adjoined with double round loops for more movement of the pearl when worn.
The back of these meena earrings just like any other royal Mughal pieces, is what differentiates and adds variety to these royal earring pieces. The earring back is fully enameled in green and red meena with floral and leaf engraving through the exposed thin yellow gold outlines. This kind of Meena/enamel form is also called “Do Rangi Meena,” of the classic green and red enamel work. It’s a very intricate work by the engraver, as there are no gold outlines and it’s a free-flow of direct meena work on the earring.
The solid 22k gold is purposely used in these enamel/meena pieces, as the meenakari shows the best on gold as it has a natural sheen that sets off the colors of Meenakari beautifully. It also holds the enamel better and adds shine to it. This dynamic and floral solitaire polki diamond and enamel earring are made to wear for special occasions.
