This jewelry design is reminiscent of the scroll motif popular in 18th-century decorative arts. The scroll is classic in origin, dating to days of ancient Greece. Artisans of the 18th century often combined classical and natural elements, rendering the curving scroll shape in the form of gracefully flowing leaves and vines.

The character of scroll designs changed over the years. Scrolls executed in the baroque style early in the 18th century possessed a heavy, dense, sculptural quality. By mid-century, that boldness was being supplanted by the lighter styles of French rococo. The designs tended to be more delicate, fluid and often fanciful.

These sterling earrings are such a nice change from traditional hoops. The scroll detail is beautiful, and the size is quite delicate. They feel weightless on my earlobes.
