These dazzling earrings are crafted in sterling silver and each features gorgeous cushion cut paste stones that are foil backed and beautifully faceted. The crystals are particularly large in size and bezel set in an ornate sterling frame with a closed back, each securely affixed to a 9kt yellow gold wire. The facets on the front of the stones give the earrings a fabulous light-catching quality, and could easily be mistaken for the real thing. They would look perfect for daily wear or special occasions and would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
Measurements: Each earring hangs slightly less than 3/4" long. The earrings measure 1/2" wide and and have a depth of 3/8" at the widest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting or ear wires, both paste stones are intact and securely set. There is a small chip at the top of one earring, however, it is not noticable when worn and can only be seen under magnification.
