This very pretty pair of earrings are a wonderful blend of ancient and modern; the modern rope design ear wires are inlaid with turquoise and attached by means of a modern chain to ancient conical drops made from high carat hollow sheet gold. Light and easy to wear.
Condition: These earrings have been specially made by our jeweler and aside from the ancient conical drops with good ancient patina, all components of the earrings are new and unused.
Provenance: The ancient conical drops are from a private NYC collection, acquired in the 1980s.
