The original cinnabar items were made with a poison glaze which was poisonous, to a baby or toddler. Therefore, if you want a pair of cinnabar earrings, you should buy a more modern version of cinnabar. These screw back earrings were made in the 1970s. They are 2 1/4" tall and each ball is 15 mm. Marked 14 K G-F (gold filled). Excellent vintage condition.
