"The most fashionable earrings of the time were designed as elongated drops measuring up to 10-12 cm in length stamped out of thin gold sheet and decorated en repoussé; their rich scroll, shell and foliagte motifs were often applied with minute naturalistic decorative elements in gold of various colours and set with gems."
