This is a beautiful pair of white freshwater pearls in Baroque shape. No two baroque shaped pearls are alike, so matching them into pairs is a challenging task. 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.
