Pear and Round Paste Silver Earrings with French Wire Back


These earrings bear a multitude of paste stones, fully-foiled, in two beautiful cuts: each earring holds a large central pear-shape paste stone in a bezel setting with foiled enclosed back, accompanied by a host of smaller round foiled stones in full bezels as well. Decorative prongs and subtle milgrain detail each earring, with an articulated portion at the bottom encrusted with five paste stones in a flower-like arrangement. A simple gold French wire back allows for an easy and comfortable fit through your ear, adding a splash of warm color. This lovely pair of earrings would make an excellent addition to your collection --
