Designed and crafted by American artist and jeweler Sarah Cavender, these Renaissance-inspired post earrings were made exclusively for the special exhibition Michelangelo: Mind of the Master at the Getty Center. They feature lapis lazuli cabochon stones, which were made popular during the Renaissance through trade with India. During this period, more advanced techniques in jewelry making became popular, such as filigree detail. Artisans began perfecting these ancient traditions, creating masterful, intricate designs in metalwork.
