Artemisia White Earrings
A pair of hand-lacquered white earrings with a golden teardrop. Lovingly hand-made in Italy.
This glitzy pair of earrings is dedicated to none other than Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the most celebrated Italian artists.
She was born in Rome, the only daughter of the painter Orazio Gentileschi, with whom she trained. As a young woman she was molested by a fellow artist and the persecution of her perpetrator turned into a highly publicised court case. This personal tragedy for many years overshadowed her artistic achievements. However overcoming this hardship, her depiction of strong and resilient women became one of her pictorial specialities. Transcending the restrictions enforced on women of her time, she became one of Europe's most sought-after painters working for the highest echelons of society. Until today, she is considered as one of the great artistic trailblazers of her generation.
Hand-made, in Italy.

Disclaimer – The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. All of our necklaces and earrings are hand-made, with components and beads that are produced using machinery or made by hand individually. As a result, the shapes, colours, and sizes of each item and/or component may differ slightly from the image shown above.
All Pietrasanta bijoux are created using the highest quality beads and components. Please follow these steps to ensure that your items are not damaged or compromised.
The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time. Tarnishing is not a fault, and to avoid this, you may use a lint-free cloth to clean the metals components of your bijoux. Similarly, as the metal components may bend under pressure, we advise that the bijoux be stored and transported in rigid boxes to avoid any external pressure compromising the item.
Please ensure that your jewellery avoids contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, water, and moisture, as it may lead to discolouration of the resin, and metal components. Similarly, please avoid extreme temperatures, humidity, sunlight, or spotlights, as this will compromise the quality and features of the bijoux. These factors may lead to a fault, and may be avoided if cared for as outlined above. Additionally, in the rare case that the finish of a component scratches off, this will be considered as natural wear and tear of the item due to the way in which the component was made, and not seen as a fault. With regards to general care of your bijoux, we advise that they be kept in a cool, dark and dry place, and be cleaned with lint-free cloths. Tarnishing or discolouration due to chemical contact is not a manufacturing fault.
We are not responsible for any damage due to negligence, and damage or faults caused by wear and tear are the responsibility of the owner.
