Mid-Century Mixed Metal, Marcasite & Pearl Earrings
STORY: Lovingly restored earrings from the 1950s. Contrasting rolled gold and silver metals studded with marcasites and imitation pearls.
DISCOVERY: These earrings were rescued from an antique market in France. They were in perfect, unworn condition but missing their earwires. They have been rehung on new rolled gold french hooks. You can tell they were high quality in their time as each marcasite is hand set into silver prongs.
HOW TO WEAR:
These earrings can be worn everyday or for special occasions. They cannot be worn in water as this will destroy the pearls and or loosen any glue. They will require occasional polishing due to the silver tarnishing.
