This is a beautiful pair of natural colored freshwater pearls in Baroque shape. No two baroque shaped pearls are alike, so matching them into pairs is a challenging task. In addition to the shape, the color tone of the pearl's surface varies in each one because they are naturally colored, non-died pearls. You will love these pearls if you love the organic, made by nature look of imperfection that characterizes Baroque pearls. They are crowned by 22 karat gold over silver vermeil granulated ear wires in a mat finish. Granulation is an ancient technique that has been used in jewelry of the antique Greek and Roman Empire. It gives these earrings a unique look that could have been worn in Athens and Rome's palaces thousands of years ago.
