These earrings are from the line OrientalismThis is an artistic and literary current that mainly marked the 19th century, born of the fascination of European artists and writers for the countries of the east and west (Middle East and North Africa). This current had a lasting influence on our perception of the East; the idea that we had of it was based on stories that were sometimes more imaginary than real, and gave rise to representations that were often whimsical and exotic. The term oriental evokes several peoples and cultures: commonly, we think of Byzantine, Ottoman, Moorish, Moroccan, Berber, Arab, Tuareg...
It is this atmosphere that the Orientalism line restores, through craftsmanship, stuccoes, zelliges, architecture...
It is the idea of an oriental lantern that inspired these earrings. With their incredible diversity of shapes, their finely cut patterns, it is a bit of the orient that comes to us through these traditional lamps so characteristic.
These buckles are resolutely asymmetrical: the most imposing takes the shape of a lantern, engraved on all sides with typical Arabic motifs. On the base of the lantern is inscribed the brand name Res Mirum. The small buckle features a zellige motif.
The fastening system of these loops is original; the elements are suspended from large rings that look like creoles, but the assembly is done using a classic chip. The large rings are open, the ends are terminated by small rings in which the chip slides, and is held by the stroller. To put them in place it is thus necessary to come to position the lobe in the opening of these rings, and to pass the chip in the whole.
This system is more reliable and robust than a conventional Creole system. Unlike the pendant...the little lantern doesn't open, for weight reasons...
The total height of the large earring is 53 mm, the small one 35 mm. The creole alone is 24 mm in diameter. The lantern alone is 30 mm high by 17 mm wide, the round element alone is 11 mm in diameter. The weight of the large earring is 8.5 g and 2 g for the small one.
The attachment system is a classic pushchair-stem system.
