Is there a bit of a classical goddess in your soul? Do you long to dress in flowing, drapey silks and sweep your hair half-way up? Perhaps you want to sport a pair of gladiator sandals and drink wine from goblets? Yes? Well, then, you most definitely need these fantastic and very classical earrings!
These gorgeous drop earrings feature shell cameos of ladies in profile. The cameos are set into lovely 18 karat gold frames and have tassels hanging from the bottoms and scrolling gold work at the tops. The tops and wires are hinged to give great movement to these earrings for maximum effect. Each earring measures 50 mm from top to bottom and 15 mm across, and together they weigh 7.2 grams. These beauties are not marked but we’ve carefully acid tested them to verify their gold content. They were hand crafted in about 1870, to great effect.
I believe that this lady is actually Omphale, the mistress of the hero Hercules, she was not a Goddess, but was Queen of the kingdom of Lydia in Asia Minor. Perhaps she’ll make you feel like the Queen that you are in your soul.
