Mesopotamian Gold Cap Earrings
 
Inspired by the elegant gold and lapis blue colored jewelry found in Mesopotamia, that region located between the Tigres and Euphrates riveres, known as the “cradle of civilization”, these splendid earrings are made of rich, royal blue sodalite with gold finished caps and French ear wires.

They are reflective of the costume and jewelry designs seen in the many brilliant productions of Norma at the Met.

History

Vincenzo Bellini’s Norma

Bellini’s tragic tale of a tormented priestess caught in a love triangle, first heard in 1831, features one of the greatest bel canto roles in the soprano repertoire. The title heroine’s aria “Casta diva” has become synonymous with this style, which combines a wealth of melody with long legato lines and vocal fireworks.
