14k Gold Traditional Croatian Earrings, The Moretto - Morcic Earrings, Talisman, Good Luck Charm, Handcrafted Solid Gold Enamel Earrings
★ The Moretto ( Morčič ) handcrafted in solid 14k gold, m-sized ( please refer to size-measurement photo ):
Croatian traditional jewelry originating from the 17th and 18th century, symbol of the port city of Rijeka ( Rijeka’s Good Luck Charm ). Female jewelry includes earrings, pins and brooches, while the men sailors and fishermen's wore Moretto on the right ear as a talisman.
Earrings with the bust of a black Moor wearing a turban are today worn by the local women regardless of their social status and nationality - in the multiethnic Rijeka which boasts with as many as 22 national minorities.
Technology has advanced but our moretto earrings are made by using the same enamel technology used by the old goldsmiths.
Enamel is old technique of applying coloured glass powder which is heated up-to 800 °C in two sequences to the 14k base of the earrings. This
creates durable coating which isn't easily prone to damage as opposed to modern resin-based coatings which are much easier to make.
During the meticulous handmade process which is performed through many different steps starting from the making of the earrings frame, through the making of the closing latch, several applications of enamel coating and final polishing - each piece becomes a unique item.★
*Due to the handmade creation, every pair is unique, so there can be tiny variations in dimensions and appearance of the finished earrings. They are on average:
Overall length: 1.6 cm ( 0.63" )
Overall depth: 1.2 cm ( 0.47" )
Turban diameter: 0.55 cm ( 0.21" )
