Biwa Pearl Fantasy in White Medieval Style Chandelier Earrings
The complete loop of each earring is 3"(7.6cm).
The long irregular shaped Biwa pearls are 15mm (5/8") in length. The smaller potato pearls are 5.5mm. The top pearls are 9.5mm (1/3").
They have an ancient look to them - could be medieval or Etruscan or Roman, Bactrian princess style....take your pick. Victorian ladies also loved this style of chandelier earring.
Did you know that the term chandelier earring is from the French word "candelabre" (meaning: branched candlestick)? It goes back to the 16th century.
