PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AS IT WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION. PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT EBAY PHOTOS CAN MAKE ITEMS (PARTICULARLY JEWELLERY) APPEAR LARGER THAN THEY ARE. ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE.
Description : Back in the 1980's my husband worked for a shipping and freight forwarding company that did a lot of business with the Scandinavian countries. He brought these unsual earrings back from one of his business trips. They have slender silver hooks (I assume that they are real silver but there are no stamps on them) from which is suspended a slightly domed dropper. The dropper has an unpierced silver collar with is set with a small marquise shaped stone which I believe to be lapis (or possibly sodalite - sorry, this is a best guess!) Beneath the stone is a stylised vine and leaf pattern. The droppers are quite large measuring approximately 2.5 cms in length x approximately 3 cms across the widest part. Each dropper is stamped 925 at the back and is in plain, mirror finish silver. These are unusual earrings but aren't really my sort of thing - hence the sale.
