Soft, lustrous pearls are beautifully contrasted against the depth of sparking red garnets in these timeless button-style post earrings from the 1950s. The deep crimson garnets surround each pearl in two rows, each prong-set alongside the next in 14k gold. The AAA gem grade Akoya pearls are of the finest quality, with a bright white lustre. Each earring measures about 5/8 inch in diameter and 3/8 inch thick, not including the post. Each is secured with a butterfly backing.
