These old earrings offer lots of bling! The faceted prong set stones are framed with a brassy twisted wire setting. Each earring is slightly wider than 1/2" and offers a post for pierced ears. The photos do not capture the fiery sparkle of these paste stones. The original slide on backs for the posts are no longer with the earrings, so clear plastic "nuts" will be provided.
I suspect that these antique earrings were converted to pierced post earrings by some enterprising artisan years ago. If so, the backs remain tight and the artisan did a wonderful job.
