Gold Pendant Earrings


Made in Italy in the 1960s, these pendant earrings are composed of gold. Each is designed as a domed hemi-spherical top with spiral wirework and bead motifs, flexibly suspending a drop-shaped form with conforming ornamentation. These light forms with varied surface designs and graceful movement enhance the face and eyes with gleams of reflected light.
