Marcasites sparkle like black diamonds, studding these perfectly patinated sterling drop earrings from the turn of the century! The ear wires are made of 14k rose gold, and the earrings are backed by the same subtle pink gold, characteristic of the c1900 era. Centered in each drop, sits a natural baroque pearl, each with a beautifully textured, peach toned lustre. These earrings have just the right mix of glitter, cute feminine details, elegant length, and toned-down metal to be worn casually or all dressed up! They measure about 1 3/4 inches long and just under 3/4 inch at their widest. They may be machine polished to high white silver shine upon request.
