These are a very interesting pair earrings. Each earring has three pieces dangling from the top. A shell with gold or gold plated band; a horn shaped MOP piece, and a tear dropped MOP piece. The earrings are finished with hook style ear wires. If my memory serves me right, I have seen a same pair of Miriam Haskell earrings, but with different findings. These maybe look alike, or modified for pierced ears. Total length of the earrings are 3 1/2 inches long. The shells are near 1 inches in size.
