On offer today is a lovely pair of earrings that have been converted from screw-backs to pierced dangles.

The dangling butterflies are cast iron (!) with delicate Japanese motifs rendered in 14K gold and sterling silver. They are not heavy though!!

The ear wires and backs of the butterflies are gold plated brass (plating shows wear).

There are no markings, but they are likely by Amita of Japan. The earrings measure about 1 3/8 inches long total. The butterflies are about 5/8 inches wide and 1/2" tall.

These are very elegant earrings, suitable for casual and office wear.

Be sure to snoop in my shop for more Far East themed AuldBaubles!

Frequently asked questions about AuldBaubles

SAFETY:
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.

LOCAL JEWELERS:
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 ARE APPROXIMATE:
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.
