A good pair of 18ct gold and carved coral drop earrings that were made circa 1800-1820. The carving is like a pineapple design. The gold work is called cannetille. Cannetille work was based on a style of fabric embroidery that was adapted to precious metal. It is made with fine, twisted wire or thin sheets of gold. It became popular during the Georgian era.
