Description

"Aida" Gold And Lapis Hoop Earrings

The striking combination of bright, blue lapis lazuli and polished gold was as favored by the ancient Sumerians in Mesopotamia as it was by the Egyptians.

They learned early on how to shape gold, silver, copper and bronze into useful objects. Necklaces, other jewelry, boxes and statues richly embellished with gold and lapis were found among the many treasures excavated at the royal cemetery at Ur.

Made of gold finished bronze, these splendid earrings are reflective of the spectacular costume and jewelry designs featured in the Met’s magnificent production of Aida.

History

Set against the epic backdrop of ancient Egypt, Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida (1871) is an intimate love story about one man and two women who get caught between their personal feelings and the fate of their nations. The great Triumphal Scene at the center of Act II ranks among opera’s most celebrated moments.
