These delicate earrings are reminiscent of the Greek style in jewelry and have a slightly un like shape to them as well. They are made from 14Kt Gold Filled Material with the bottom of the "Urn" suspended on chains like the ancient style lanterns and candle holders. I tend to revert to the classical forms which is clearly represented in these earrings. The stones are Tanzanite briolettes which are single source gemstones from Tanzania. While they are a relatively recent find in the gem world they are very quickly being depleted from the few mines where they have been found. These are a lovely accent to any wardrobe both casual and formal . The earrings measure approximately 25 inches in the drop from top to bottom.
