The lapis stones are split and resting in between is a faceted rock quartz crystal disk. The earrings hang from a simple clasped 14kt gold earring wire. The lapis has beautiful color with various hues of blue, burnt red, and brown. These stunning earrings are in beautiful condition and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2 3/8" long and measures approximately 1/2" at its widest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the lapis, rock quartz crystals or pearls, or to the gold.
