I purchased these earrings some years ago at a street fair, where the vendor had many interesting and beautiful items made from very old trade beads. She told me these had been ancient spindle whorls.

Of course I'm not an expert on antique beads, but what's certain is that these are beautiful "denim lapis" lozenge shaped beads, on silver tone (surgical steel I think) earwires and findings. They're from my own collection, but I pretty much never wore them, as I never wear blue (yeah I'm weird).

I kept them, though, just because the stones were so pretty! But hey, I've hoarded them long enough, time for them to go to someone who'll wear them and share them with the world!

They measure about 1 3/4 inches long, and the beads have a diameter of about 14mm.

Be sure to look in my shop for more ancient and ethnic AuldBaubles!
(I also have a ton of vintage engagement rings!)

Frequently asked questions about AuldBaubles

Vintage/Antique baby/children's jewelry almost certainly does not meet metals safety standards for youngsters of today. Therefore I can only sell it for adult use.

I cannot guarantee sterility of earring posts/hooks/wires (and/or other pieces where this may be an issue). Please purchase and use at your own risk.

May try to sell you work your ring doesn't need! Be on your guard, refer to Item Details for info re: prongs and bands.

Colors may display inaccurately on screens.
RING SIZES are approximate, due to jewelers' ring sizing mandrels not being completely standardized.

STONE SIZES are necessarily estimates, because in most cases, I cannot measure the depth of a stone due to its being in a setting. I measure the diameter (or length and width) of a stone with digital calipers, and estimate its carat weight from its span.

BANGLE SIZE: Please note the inner diameter for the bangle. I suggest you cut out a mock-up on sturdy cardboard to see how it will fit you before ordering.
The outer packaging is discreet, nobody will know there is jewelry inside.

I do not use my shop name on the return address; this is for the item's safety in transit and for privacy on arrival, as jewelry items are often bought as gifts.

Pieces are sent in small carton boxes tied with rustic string, or cushioned inside handmade wrapping paper gift bags.
