Donatella Earrings were inspired by the ‘caged beads’ of the Renaissance era. Women in gorgeous gowns wore ‘caged jewels’ as pendants or rings. Usually it was a strongly perfumed clay bead, captured in a gold cage that made life more bearable in social gatherings. Donatella Earrings feature teardrop gemstone beads, twinkling with crystal-encrusted bead cap and further embellished with gold seed beads. Donatella Earrings are perfect for daytime and special occasions.
