These are my very favorite purple earrings, which is saying a lot in a year when pale purples are so on-trend. But it's not just the purple beads that make these lovely: The centerpiece beads here are quite special: These luminous white balls are vintage moonglow lucite beads, from a necklace that my grandmother loved (c.~1940-50).* They look like moonstone to me, absolutely radiant, and, despite their age, they're flawless. Capped with curved silver flower spacers, the balls balance vintage lavender-blue crystals (the only pair in my collection), which are beautifully shaped with oodles of facets, stunning color, and remarkable clarity. Small (~3mm) sterling silver flower spacers cap the crystals, topped with 6mm lavender vintage matte Czeech glass balls with aurora borealis glow on one side. 3mm shimmering sterling silver stardust balls finish the earrings on top.

I've taken the photos all over my garden and house, from different angles in varying light, so be sure to check each picture. Depending on your computer monitor, colors may appear slightly warmer/ cooler =or= darker/ lighter than they are in person. Please convo me with questions.

These beautiful earrings measure 1" bead-to-bead, and they hang 1-1/3 inches from sterling silver French ear wires.**

Your earrings will arrive ready for gift-giving, accompanied by a handmade card that describes the the beads and wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request; be sure to include all pertinent details (including occasion) at checkout.

*Lest you think me incredibly callous, I should let you know that one strand of my grandmother's necklace broke, so I "harvested" the beads -- She wanted me to use them in my jewelry. Another strand remains, and my daughter and I continue to wear the necklace whenever we have occasion to do so. These and other beads will be described in the card that accompanies your earrings.

**I have an ever-increasing variety of ear wire types (e.g., surgical steel, 14k gold-filled) and styles (e.g., leverbacks, kidney wires), including a beautiful selection of handcrafted modern hooks. If you prefer another type of ear wire, please let us know prior ordering.
