Pomegranate Earrings with Drop Garnets - Silver-Plated

EARVYPB

  • Handcrafted in silver-plated bronze using the lost-wax casting technique, these earrings were inspired by pomegranates--which appear in many forms throughout the Museum's collections and grounds. Created by California artist Jivita Harris-Casey exclusively for the J. Paul Getty Museum, these earrings feature young pomegranate dangles, each with a drop garnet. Packaged with educational insert.

    Pomegranates were domesticated around 3000 B.C. This scarlet fruit has been revered by many cultures as a symbol of health, fertility, and rebirth, instilled with profound and mystical healing powers. Pomegranates can be found in mythology, Christian allegory, medieval folklore, and in many forms throughout the history of art, including pieces in the Getty Museum's collection.

    - 1 1/4" drop (top of the ear wire to garnet)
