The Crown of Aragon has been considered by some as an empire which ruled in the Mediterranean for hundreds of years, with the power to set rules over the entire sea (for instance, the Llibre del Consolat del Mar or Book of the Consulate of the Sea, written in Catalan, is one of the oldest compilation of maritime laws in the world). It was indeed, at its height, one of the major powers in Europe.
Witness of a past time, moment of someone life, a memory and a piece of history is this rare pair of hessonite garnet Catalan earrings with their misterious engraved marmaid on the back.
Classically Spanish are the distinctive gold and gem set Iberian and Catalan earrings such as the Catalan pair shown for sale here.They are often extremely long and traditionally set with emeralds or hessonite garnets.
Here an amazing pair, three parts articulated set with eighteen antique octagonal cut natural hessonite garnets, foiled and closed back.
Each element is composed of raised sections, with scrolling decoration, set with approx 8.80 Ct of hessonite garnets enahnced by delicate marine engraving to the reverse with scales and fish fins on the dangling drop.
