Earrings from Bernard Instone*
A fine pair of drop earrings that are unmarked but we are quite confident are from the workshop of Bernard Instone.
Crafted in two sections, the upper part with a pair of leaves below a gold ball. This is linked to the larger lower section which comprises a cluster of leaves and berries framing a faceted oval amethyst stone.
In typical Instone fashion, two more leaves can be found on the back of the earrings immediately above the amethysts.
Fitted with gold wires and measuring 3.5 cm long from the top of the gold ball.
