There's nothing basic about these black earrings -- just look at their comely shape. I admit I had a hard time capturing all the facets of the sparkly crystals; hopefully you'll see the beautiful contrast of soft curves and hard angles, dark and light colors. Their glamorous handmade spiraling ear wires make them absolutely perfect for even the fanciest event, while their neutral colors make them versatile earrings that would look particularly great with jeans and a T. I only have one set of the lovely clear crystals, alas, so these will be a one-of-a-kind pair, for a one-of-a-kind woman.

The centerpiece 12mm black crystals are beautiful -- diamond-sharp facets catch light at all angles, and you'll see an almost chocolaty radiance at times. They are accented beneath and above by 4mm sterling bead caps, and below, 2mm sterling balls extend from hand-crafted headpins. 8mm vintage clear crystal bicones . They are very subtly finished with teeny antique cut steel beads, whose many facets on shiny metal sparkle when you least expect it. These are light, bright earrings that can be as subdued as you'd like them to be; when you want to add some glam to your life, they'll light up with sparkle, shine, and shimmer!

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure 2/3." They hang 1-3/4 inches from Betty Brite's simple and lovely sterling hoops.*

Your earrings will be accompanied by a handmade card that describes the wires & beads. Gift wrapping is free upon request, and we are happy to mail your present directly to the recipient.

*Oh I do love these wires! Betty Brite makes these and other amazing wires for us -- as well as the headpins used to string the beads. I have a large collection of both modern and traditional wires; if you'd like to change wires, convo me prior to ordering. A small charge may apply for some styles.
