Description
These respelendent earrings of red jade combined with gold-plated cloisonné beads are the epitome of opulence. The beaded design is inspired by the traditional Chinese technique of enamelling which arised in the 13–14th centuries. The process was initially viewed with suspicion, but, by the beginning of the 18th century it became so highly regarded that the Kangxi Emperor himself had a cloisonné workshop among the many imperial factories.

Regal gold and red tones complete the striking effect.
