Vintage Persian Turquoise & Pearl Earrings
All the way from Brighton, England to Texas in search of a new home! These hand crafted beauties are constructed of 800 silver, natural turquoise and cultured pearls. They can be polished to a higher shine, but I chose to leave most of the patina to enhance the age and detail of the wire work. In very good condition, with NO cracks or breaks to the stones or pearls. There are a few turquoise settings that look like they have been repaired at some point, but all stones are natural and secure. Nice bright white pearls adorn the tip of each uniquely designed dangle. They are comfortable for all day wear and do NOT pull on the earlobe from weight an very little wear to ear wires. These were acquired from an English estate of a lady who traveled the world in her early years. They would make a perfect gift for that free spirited lady or BoHO Chic sister you love so much!
