    £75.00 Members' price *


    These heart-shaped earrings are inspired by a three-hundred-year-old pendant in the British Museum collection. Ideal as a gift.

    The original, dated between the 17th and 18th Century, is from the Mughal dynasty period (best known for the Taj Mahal - the most famous structure in India built during the Mughal Era). It is a pendant with an eagle design on the front; on the reverse it is enamelled with a floral spray. The original is made of gold and set with cut diamond, rubies and emeralds, but has been interpreted here in brass with 18 carat gold plating and Swarovski crystals to suggest the opulence of the original.

    The earrings are engraved with 'BM', the initials of the Museum - a subtle indicator of their origin.
