Bezel set with a decorative pointed edge, the stones and the silver shape of the earrings are slightly asymmetrical and organic. The backings are present on posts. Earrings measure, 1 3/8”from top by 1 1/8” wide. Weight is 14.1 grams.
Previous owner bought them in the 1970’s at the Phoenix, a high end shop in Georgetown, Washington DC which featured Mexican and Southwestern fashions and jewelry. I have lightly cleaned the silver with Wright’s Silver Cream, but there is still nice old patina. Great Southwestern vintage hippie chic.
