This is a beautiful pair of antique French gold metallic tassels. The metallic thread is bright gold; in my photos they appear to be a dull gold.
Although they appear to have never been used, both have a pink silk remnant at the top, where metallic gold thread is wrapped around. One on the top bands rises up a bit, as you can see; you just have to push it down.
Each measures approximately 6” long, not counting the 1 1/8” top portion with the pink fabric.
