About

Wonderfully unique antique earrings of 15 karat acid finish gold set with pale peach coral beads, Holland rose cut diamonds and twisted wirework framing the motif. The rich, warm color of the gold is set off by the addition of a robin's egg blue central dome of enamel surrounded by a circle of white enamel. They're for pierced ears, with a shepherd's hook wire, and hang down 1 3/4" from the ear. A very coquette earring for the experienced antique collector.
