A gorgeous pair of Silver Vermeil (sterling silver plated with gold) Clip Earrings in the shape of the head of one of the big Cats, possibly a Panther, holding a large ring or hoop in its mouth. Each ring/hoop is attached so that it can move as the wearer moves. The Cats eyes are set with quite vivid green rhinestones. The Earrings are marked on the clips '925' for Sterling Silver and also have the Italian marks for sterling silver.
The Earrings measure 1/2 inch side to side (this measurement is at the top of the cat's head, the ring in its mouth is just slightly larger) and a fraction under 1 inch top to bottom.
In excellent condition with no damage or even signs of previous wear. These have a highly polished surface so any marks appearing in the photos are simply reflections.
