Modern Baroque Pearl Earrings by Fichot Dramatic and artsy, over 2 and 1/2 inches long, these dynamic earrings were presumably and crafted, although not signed, by Jean Francois Fichot (we acquired it along with the matching ring # 30-3-7133). A shimmering pair of large, highly-baroque South Sea pearls, with orient resembling the iridescence of a bubble are capped in rich velvety 18K yellow gold, extruded to create long slender ear wires. Chic, moderne minimalism.
