What can I say? These earrings are FABULOUS. Super-sparkly 15mm vintage olive-emerald green crystals (from my grandmother's collection) at the bottom, and pale, green-opal crystals above, accented with gold, copper, and antiqued bronze from top to bottom. The facets of the crystals catch the light at every single angle. They're the kind of earrings that can be worn with anything, from your fanciest dress to jeans and T. These are go-to earrings you'll wear to Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas parties, spring picnics and summer weddings, for many, many years to come.
The centerpiece crystals are true family treasures. They came from a necklace that belonged to my amazing grandmother, and I think they're at least 60 years old. They are accented below with small (3mm) curved gold flower bead caps and tiny balls of antiqued bronze (extended from the headpins). Corrugated gold saucer beads (hollow, so they keep these earrings very light) balance upon the crystals, with luminous hand-cut nuggets of minty green, opaline green crystal above. 2.5mm gold balls finish the earrings on top, where they're accented further by the bronze from the ear wires. Please note that differences in color are largely due to the changing light in the various locations in which the photos were taken.
The earrings measure 1 inch bead-to-bead, and hang a smidge under 2 inches from antiqued bronze leverback ear wires (lead-free & nickel-free).*
Your earrings will be accompanied by a handmade card that details the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request, and I'm happy to send your present directly to the recipient. Please convo us details (mailing address, your message, occasion) at checkout.
*I have a wide variety of ear wire types/styles (leverbacks, gold-plated/14k gold, handcrafted modern, etc.), and I'm happy to change yours upon request. A small charge may apply for some styles.
