Large hoops thread through the back of your ear. They are set with glass jewels in ruby red and emerald green. Four chains dangle down. They have dimensional ball and paddle charms that are accented with tiny glass seed beads. Lots of movement when you turn your head with a soft jingling sound. These have a large gauge wire than new earrings so please check that out. They can also be converted by adding an ear wire to the top of the hoop,

I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
