Gothic Quatrefoil Earrings (Black Onyx)

V&A - The Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Item Ref: VA07288
Our price: £65.00



V&A Jewellery - Gothic quatrefoil range - a quatrefoil is literally a representation of a four-leaved plant or flower and features very prominently in gothic architecture as a decorative symmetrical shape created by four overlapping circles.  It is very common in many churches and cathedrals, and also has connotations of good fortune, as in the four-leafed clover.  A beautifully simple and balanced shape, it lends itself perfectly to fine jewellery design, as demonstrated in these very elegant pieces, which have a symbolic and timeless appeal.  The quatrefoil motif has been delicately depicted in sterling silver .

This piece was inspired from an object in The Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
